THIS MONTH’S COVER ART BY N. TAYLOR BLANCHARD 






























Advertisement 


CRYSTAL ENERGY: FACT 

Almost anyone who has read a maga¬ 
zine, newspaper, or, even watched 
television in recent months would 
surely have seen some kind of report on 
the public’s growing interest in crystals 
and the “power” some people claim to 
have found in them. 

What do you know about crystals? 
Are they just some “new age” rabbit’s 
foot that people are carrying in their 
pockets for good luck? In order to help 
separate fact from fiction the noted 
authority on crystals and gem therapist, 
Gari Gold, recently initiated extensive 
research to dispell many of the myths 
and misconceptions surrounding quartz 
crystal. 

Silicon dioxide, more popularly 
known as quartz crystal, is found in 
mineral deposits throughout the world 
and are used to perform delicate 
functions in many modern devices used 
today. Due to the hardness and 
focusing power of crystals, telescopes 
and other optical devices are made 
possible through their use. The precise 
oscillation of quartz crystals has been 
useful in the development of modern 
communications systems as well as many 
computers. Another useful property of 
crystal is the generation of piezo¬ 
electricity, a phenomenon that genrates 
small amounts of electricity when cry¬ 
stals are compressed. However, more 
important than the aforementioned 
qualities are the metaphysical, spiritual, 
and healing properties of crystals. It is 
for these properties that crystals have 
enjoyed their recent popularity, and 
justifiably so. 

Gold’s findings state that crystals 
have been used effectively throughout 
the centuries by Indian shamans, 



OR FICTION 

Egyptian priests and 
other spiritualists to 
help focus the mind, 
relieve localized pain, 
and even tap into and 
focus one’s own psy¬ 
chic powers. There is 
definitely more to the use of quartz 
crystals than mere fascination or as a 
new age trinket. As a result of Gold’s 
research, it was demonstrated that 
quartz crystal can enhance the quality 
of your meditation and prayer, increase 
your psychic abilities and ESP, enhance 
the dream state, relieve localized pain, 
create desirable change in your life, and 
open your universal vibrations. 

However, Gold did discover that 
there are things that crystals cannot do 
for you. It is only after study and 
practice that you will be able to develop 
the use of crystals as a metaphysical 
tool and the most important first lesson 
in harnessing crystal power is to realize 
both the awesome power and the limita¬ 
tions of crystal energy. 

Editor's Note: 

The editor of the Krystal Haven, a fellowship 
devoted to the spiritual and physical fulfilment of 
mankind, would like to offer Gari Gold's recently 
released book entitled Crystal Energy. Released toyou 
are the results of Gold’s research and the methods you 
can use to make Crystal Energy work for you! Not only 
will you receive this “must read" edition of Crystal 
Energy for your library but you will receive absolutely 
free a genuine quartz crystal so that you can put crystal 
power to work for you immediately!

tions that will well serve the expert, novice or anyone- 
interested in this latest to be studied phenomenon of

QUOTE OF THE MONTH: 
There are several passages in 
scripture that deal in the area of 
Astrology, and none speak favor¬ 
ably of the practice. Isaiah 47:13, 
14 says to "Let your astrologers 
come forward, those stargazers 
who make predictions month by 
month...surely they are like stub¬ 
ble; the fire will burn them up. 
They cannot even save themselves 
from the power of the' 
flame." 

—J. Larry Vaughan II 

When I lived in San 
Diego, California, I would 
frequently listen to a 
radio program called 
"The Bible Answer Man" 
hosted by Dr. Walter Mar¬ 
tin (now deceased). Dr. Martin 
answered questions about the 
Bible from people who called 
him during the show. He present¬ 
ed the fundamentalist view and I 
learned a great deal. 

He frequently claimed that 
cults (meaning any group he 
didn't agree with) would take 
quotes from the Bible out of con¬ 


text in order to prove their point. 
What I have learned is that 
"cults" aren't the only ones to 
distort the Bible's meaning. 

Take, for example, the quota¬ 
tion given above. It was printed 
in the editorial section of The 
Manchester Enterprise of Man¬ 
chester, Kentucky, on January 25, 
1990. A copy of the article was 
sent to me by Anthony Washburn 
who received the paper, -v 
As soon as I saw the \ 
ellipsis (...) indicating 
that something had been 
left out, I decided to 
investigate. Frankly, I 
was rather shocked—the 
passage, taken in context, 
is not anti-astrology! 

In fact, the chapter is a 
message from God to Israel to 
repent. Isaiah 47:13 begins, 
'Thou art wearied in the multi¬ 
tude of thy counsels..." and con¬ 
tinues as in the quote above. So 
to start off, the passage is not 
talking about astrologers, it is 
talking about all advisors. 

"Let your astrologers come 
forward, those stargazers who

make predictions month by 
month and save thee from these 
things that shall come upon 
thee." This is the section that Mr. 
Vaughan cleverly left out of his 
quote. Obviously he didn't want 
people to read this passage and 
discover that it was not against 
astrology but discussed a fate 
that God had ordained if the peo¬ 
ple of Israel did not repent. 

Mr. Vaughan also omits 47:15 
which adds, "Thus shall they be 
unto thee with whom thou hast 
labored, even thy merchants, 
from thy youth? They shall wan¬ 
der every one to his quarter; 
none shall save thee." 

/j This is not an anti-astrology pas¬ 
sage! In f^ct, one might ask why 
astrologers are singled out if they 
were not held in high acclaim. In 
context, the passage says that 
Israel must repent of its ways or 
face doom, and no one—not even 
\ the excellent astrologers—can 
save them. But astrologers have 
never claimed to be able to change 
the future. 

Mr. Vaughan's letter in The 
Manchester Enterprise was written 
because the paper had begun 
printing a brief horoscope column. 
Mr. Vaughan writes that he is 
concerned that the astrology col¬ 
umn is "anti-Christian material. I 
believe to continue with the horo¬ 
scope would be an open invita¬ 
tion for the Lord to remove his 
hand of protection and blessing."

I SEE BY THE PAPERS 


Not only has Mr. Vaughan— 
knowingly or unknowingly— 
deceived the people of Man¬ 
chester, Kentucky, by a clear mis¬ 
interpretation of the Bible, but he 
also is trying to suggest that if an 
astrology column appears in the 
local paper, calamities may result. 
While we cannot suggest that he 
is lying to the readers, the intimi¬ 
dation aspect is clear. And if 
these tactics can be used in Man¬ 
chester, Kentucky, will they next 
be used in your city or town? 
Will self-appointed censors, 
using incorrect information, 
choose what you may and may 
not read? 

Mr. Washburn phoned our 
offices today. He says that the 
horoscope column no longer ap¬ 
pears in The Manchester Enterprise. 

OLD BELIEFS BREAK DOWN 

Each of us has our own reli¬ 
gion. It may be similar to that of 
others in the particular religious 
organizations to which we be¬ 
long, but it is filtered through our 
individuality. For most of us it is 
the religion of our parents, 
although many seek out alternate 
religious structures as a result of 
experience. At least this is what 
we would like to believe. 

The reality may be quite dif¬ 
ferent. A study of twins raised 
apart had "absolutely astound¬ 
ing" results according to Thomas 
Bouchard, the chairman of the

University of Minnesota Psy J 
chology Department and head of 
an 11-year study of the effect of 
genes on behavior. 

The study compared separated 
identical twins, who have the 
same genetic material, and sepa¬ 
rated fraternal twins, who share 
about half as much genetic mate¬ 
rial. The study examined 11 
behavioral traits. They believe 
that these behaviors were influ¬ 
enced about 50 per cent by hered¬ 
ity and 50 per cent by environ¬ 
ment. The proof of this controver¬ 
sial theory is that the identical 
twins had far more similar behav¬ 
iors than did the fraternal twins. 

According to one of the re¬ 


searchers, the findings "indicate 
that individual differences in reli¬ 
gious attitudes, interests and val¬ 
ues arise both from genetic and 
environmental influences." This 
certainly runs counter to the idea 
that family influences are the 
main cause of religious prefer¬ 
ences. 

Assuming that an ant could 
detect patterns, such a creature 
might detect no structure in the

HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU? 

1. You meet someone and feel an immediate kinship: □ Yes □ No 

2. You visit a strange place and feel like you've been there before: QYes □ No 

3. You have never gotten along with a certain family member: □ Yes □ No 

4. You struggle with fears that seem "irrational": □ Yes □ No 

5. You have a curiosity about reincarnation: □ Yes □ No 


If you answered "YES" to any of the above 
questions, you may have—at one time or 
another—experienced a link with one or more 
of your PAST LIVES! 

BUT HOW CAN YOU KNOW FOR SURE? 

How can you be certain that you lived in 
other physical bodies in other times and 
places? Perhaps the only real proof lies in the 
individual personal experience of remembering 
past lives. 

All your experiences, all your loves and 
wars, joys and traumas are stored in your sub¬ 
conscious memory bank. You can tap into 
these memories if you just know the technique. 

This amazing book—A PRACTICAL GUIDE 
TO PAST LIFE REGRESSION-will show you 
how to remember TODAY, with a simple tech¬ 
nique that you can use to obtain past life infor¬ 
mation. There are no mysterious preparations, 
no groups to join, no philosophy to which you 
must adhere. You don’t even have to believe in 
reincarnation! The tools are provided here for 
you to make your own investigations, find your 
own answers, and make your own judgements. 
PAST LIFE KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! 

"Viewing" what seem to be past-life memo¬ 
ries can bring you greater insight into yourself, 
clearer understanding of your strengths and 
weaknesses, and aid in clarifying your goals. 
Frequently, solutions to personal problems and 
problem relationships surface. Often it is possi¬ 
ble to understand and gain freedom from pho¬ 
bias and detrimental habits, and stop the 
repeating of self-defeating patterns. 

• This venture into your subconscious will pro¬ 
vide high adventure and unusual insight into 
YOUR SELF. Sample regressions and case 


histories show how other people have used the 
information (obtained with this technique) to 
solve problems, strengthen relationships, over¬ 
come fears, be better parents, enhance talents, 
gain self-confidence, and live a more positive, 
productive life. 

THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE ALL HERE! 

The only things you need to unlock these 
experiences yourself is this book, an hour of 
your time, and a friend who can read the ver¬ 
bal cues and questions to you! 

Reincarnation, regression, karma, transmi¬ 
gration of souls, soulmates, old souls ... what 
do these terms mean and HOW do they relate 
to YOUR life? Find out in A PRACTICAL

sort of order in the relationships 
between the positions of the 
galaxies of the universe. As a 
result, theories about the uni¬ 
verse and its origin have needed 
to account for this randomness. 

But in a controversial article 
that appeared in the British jour¬ 
nal Nature, David Koo of the 
University of California, Santa 
Cruz, and Alexander Szalay of 
Johns Hopkins University, as well 
as other researchers in England, 
report that this may have to 
change. They discovered that 
there are clumps of galaxies sepa¬ 
rated by "approximately evenly 
spaced gaps" of relatively empty 
space. This regularity was only 
seen in two small areas that the 
researchers happened to be 
observing, but they are now 
looking to see if this regularity 
exists elsewhere. 

If this pattern is shown to exist 
throughout the universe, Koo 
says we will have to revamp or 
abandon the currently popular 
theories of the development of 
the universe. 

This discovery (and some 
have discounted it as a statistical 
fluke), comes on the heels of the 
popularization of "Chaos Theory." 
This theory holds that for many 
things, chaos is a natural and 
positive state. For example, a 
record of our brainwaves looks

chaotic and unstructured. But reg¬ 
ular brainwaves indicate a 
seizure. Something in our brains 
needs chaos to function properly. 

Randomness in an experiment 
implies chaotic or unstructured 
results. For example, an experi¬ 
ment was designed to chart 
whether a penny came up heads 
or tails by making dots on a piece 
of paper. Initially, the dots 
formed no pattern. But as the 
number of trials increased, a 
strange thing occurred: patterns 
started to become visible. There 
is a structure to the randomness. 

To explain the form in what 
should be random, the chaos the¬ 
orists postulate "strange attrac¬ 
tors," an unknown something 
that causes order to appear in 
what should be unordered. 

It should be noted, however, 
that this structure never appears 
until a huge number of trials or 
experiments have been made. 
Perhaps there is order to our 
brainwaves, but seeing such a 
tiny proportion of them prevents 
us from seeing the real order. 
Maybe someday we will be able 
to stand back far enough so we 
will be able to view enough of 
our brainwaves to see an ordered 
form in their patterns. The re¬ 
searchers above have been able 
to observe such a structure in the 
universe. Perhaps someday an 
ant will see the structure of a 
field of corn.

FROM COLD FUSION TO 
FR ACTO-FU SION 
In our September 1989 issue, 
Chester Geier reported on the 
cold fusion furor ("The Cold 
Fusion Mystery"). Already, much 
of the debate has died down. The 
general consensus is that it 
wasn't cold fusion. But a ques¬ 
tion remains unanswered—what 
went on in the jar of scientist 
Pons and Fleischmann? 

According to Science News, a 
few researchers are still experi¬ 
menting with the technique and 
coming up with phenomena that 
they can't explain. Some of these 
scientists, however, have arrived 
at a theory that might explain 
what is going on. They have 
dubbed it "fracto-fusion." 

According to this theory, micro¬ 
scopic cracks develop in metals 
containing deuterium or tritium 
(these substances were involved 
in the Pons-Fleischmann experi¬ 
ments). Electrical charges along 
the cracks may speed up deuteri¬ 
um nuclei within the cracks, 
increasing the chance of the 
nuclei fusing. In short, you 
would have a miniature linear 
particle accelerator. 

Researchers proposing this 
theory from Washington State 
University and the Los Alamos 
National Laboratory have not 
found any direct evidence of 
fusion in their experiments. They 
have, however, found that condi-

PREPARE YOURSELF. 


Recent developments indicate that we 
should prepare ourselves in the very near 
future for direct face-to-face confrontation 
and communication with NON-HUMAN 
INTELLIGENT BEINGS from elsewhere in 
the Cosmos. 

Eighty percent of Americans believe 
that UFOs are real. Yet, our government 
continues to hide the facts, distort the truth, 
and silence those who would speak out. 

Extra-Terrestrials Among Us demon¬ 
strates that this contact has been vital to 
the evolution of humanity throughout histo¬ 
ry, and that confrontation—on a massive 
scale—is of vital necessity, now. 

This book presents the questions, and 
many of the answers, to the problems of 
ETs and human contact. 

• Why is it illegal (Code of Federal 
Regulations, Title 14, Section 1211) for 
any citizen to contact an ET? 

• Why are UFOs classified as even more 
secret than nuclear weapons? 

• Why has there been an increasing num¬ 
ber of physical abductions by UFOs 
reported lately? 

• Did ETs intermix with "pre-humanily" to 
provide the evolutionary stimulus and 
teach early high technology? 

• What is the outstanding universal con¬ 
tent of the ET messages? 

• What is the one thing that each of us 
must do to save the Earth's biosphere? 
(Clue: it has to do with the Space 
Beings!) 

• What are the different types of "Visitors?" 

• What of the cycles of Cattle 
Mutilations—In England during the early 
1900s and in the United Sates during the 
1970s? 

• How do you determine whether an alien 


contact is beneficial or harmful? 

• What are the esoteric references to ETs 
in the Hindu Scriptures? 

Learn about the activities of ETs 
among humans from a variety of historical 
periods and cultural traditions ... from 
ancient times to the Martian landings ... 
with details of CIA involvement, sponta¬ 
neous human combustion, the Nazis, and 
more! Includes fascinating case histories 
and authentic descriptions of ET contact. 

Alithor George Andrews researched 
the evidence for more than a decade before 
presenting his startling conclusions. Extra- 
Terrestrials Among Us is an exciting'chal¬ 
lenge to "orthodox" thinking and is carefully 
documented. Blows the lid off the govern¬ 
ment's cover-up of UFOs and their occu¬ 
pants! 300 pp., photos, illus. $9.95. 

An excellent anthology and erudite 
overview of the UFO question. Issues are 
joined and controversies are neither 
ignored nor scorned. All who love true 
mysteries should be richly rewarded.

tions for fracto-fusion do exist 
across the micro cracks. 

The actual evidence for fracto- 
fusion is inconclusive, but until it 
is disproved it is the leading 
model for an inexpensive fusion 
source. 

ROAD SALT 
AND POLLUTION 
Salt is cheap. Every winter 
tons of the stuff are dumped on 
streets and highways to help 
eliminate the ice. It makes our 
road§ safer for driving. 

But the real cost is much 
greater. Salt eats auto bodies. It 
corrodes bridges and disinte¬ 
grates pavement. These prob¬ 
lems, bad as they are, may only 


be minor compared to the pollu¬ 
tion problem caused by salt. 

Road salt is getting into ground 
water and has already caused the 
closing of public and private 
wells in several areas. Vegetation 
near roadsides has been de¬ 
stroyed by saline run-off. And as 
the salt gets into the ground 
water it is damaging under¬ 
ground pipelines and electrical 
cables. 

No snowy city has banned the 
use of road salt, but Madison, 
Wisconsin, has cut down the use 
of salt by 42 per cent. 

Will this pollution problem be 
handled sometime soon? For the 
sake of the future, we hope so.

THE MYSTERY OF S-4 
For the past two years or so, 
Don Schmitt and Kevin D. Randl e 

of the J. Allen Hynek Center for 

UFO Studies have been engaged 
in a reinvestigation of the Ros- 
well incident, the reported crash 

of a UFO i n Linc ol n Co unty, New 

Mexico, in July 1947. As of Feb- 
ruary of this year, they had inter¬ 
viewed over 170 persons directly 
or indirectly involved 

with the event, which is 

emerging as perhaps the 
central event in the early 
history of the UFO phe¬ 
nomenon. From it there 
followed, it appears, the 
greatest cover-up of the 
century. Schmitt and 
Randle's book on the 
case (titled simply Roswell) will be 
published late this year. 

For most of UFO history, sto¬ 
ries of crashed discs were reject¬ 
ed by serious ufologists, me 
among them, for one good rea¬ 
son: there was no evidence to 
support them. Although crash 
tales had circulated since the late 
1940s—in other words from the 


beginning of the UFO age—some 
( most notoriously the Azte c, 
New Mexico, crash hoax chroni¬ 
cled in Frank Scully's 1950 best¬ 
seller Behind the Flying Saucers ) 
were exposed as fraudulent. 
Others were "friend-of-a-friend" 
types of yarns (known to folk¬ 
lorists as "foaftales"). A minority 
involved alleged first-person tes¬ 
timony, but even when the 
informants seemed sin¬ 
cere (not always the case), 
there was no way to ver¬ 
ify so fantastic an asser¬ 
tion. Investigators need 
more than one source for 
stories of this kind. 

All this changed in the 
late 1970s when William 
L. Moore and Stanton T. 
Friedman focused on one case 
which seemed investigatable. In 
1980 Moore, with Charles Berlitz, 
wrote a not-very-good book 
based on the preliminary investi¬ 
gation, The Roswell Incident. 
Fortunately, Moore and Friedman 
continued their investigation 
over the next years and by 1985 
were presenting a solid case to

the UFO community. Schmitt and 
Randle's further work has con¬ 
siderably strengthened that case. 

Yet the appearance in ufology 
of a credible, powerfully-docu¬ 
mented crash/retrieval case did 
not end the rumors, speculations, 
foaftales and outright hoaxes 
about these matters. Some of the 
yarns had official sponsorship 
(see my last three articles in this 
column). Others may have had 
some factual basis but had no 
independent confirmation. Others 
represented human beings' in¬ 
nate (and essentially innocent) 
need to invent and spread tales 
for no other reason than they are 
wondrous or scary. Some were 
out-and-out fiction, invented by 
con artists seeking to extract 
money from gullible souls. 

AFTER ROSWELL 

Much of the current specula¬ 
tion, folklore, fantasy and con¬ 
spiracy theorizing centers on the 
question of what happened after 
the Roswell incident. Little of it 
has the informed good sense of 
physicist Bruce Maccabee's 198 3 

paper Revised UFO HistoryT a 

well-reasoned piece, by a ma n 
professionally familiar with clas- 
sification procedures, on how 
official agencies would have han¬ 
dled the Roswell material. Except 
for its premise (that the govern¬ 
ment possesses the remains of an 
extraterrestrial vehicle), Macca-

bee's treatment is unsensational 
and matter-of-fact. His is proba¬ 
bly the only such speculation that 
does not insult one's intelligence. 
The problem is that very little 
direct evidence of the hidden his¬ 
tory has surfaced. So far we can 
see clearly only where it began, 
on the Mac Brazel ranch in New 
Mexico, but we have practically 
no idea where it went from there. 

MJ-12 

A disputed document, almost 
certainly a forg eiyrpurpbrts ~fdT?e 
a briefing paper prepared by a 
supersecret organization called 
"Majestic-12," consisting of top 
government scientists and mili¬ 
tary officers who oversaw re¬ 
search on wreckage and bodies 
from the Roswell incident and 
another crash in 1950. Logic tells 
us that, if UFO spacecraft have 
crashed and been kept secret all 
this time, some such project, 
whether designated MJ-12 or 
something else, was certain to 
have been put into operation. 
One of the principal concerns, of 
course, would be to unlock the 
secrets of extraterrestrial technol¬ 
ogy- 

THE MYSTERY OF AREA 51 

On November 11 and 13,1989, 
KLAS-TV, the ABC affiliate in U s 

Vegas, Nevada, carried an aston¬ 
ishing story on its evening news 
show, the result of a 1 1/2-year 


invest igation by reporter Georg e 
Knapp . The subject was one 
Robert Lazar, ident ified as a 
physicist who worked at a high¬ 
ly-classified government labora¬ 
tory where the U.S. government 
is studying interplanetary hard¬ 
ware. 

Lazar claimed to have been 
employed at Area 51, situated in 
a corner of the Nevada Test Site, 
a remote location ringed by the 
Groom Mountains and desert 
expanses. For several decades 
some of the most sensitive mili¬ 
tary and intelligence research 
and development have been 
going on there. The U-2 and SR- 
71 spy planes were tested at the 
site. Other projects which have 
emerged from Area 51 are the 
Stealth and Strategic Defense 
Initiative ("Star Wars") technolo¬ 
gy. For years rumors have circu¬ 
lated that some of the work going 
on there is literally out of this 
world. Much of the speculatio n 
has been sparked by persisten t 

reports of unusual lights see n 

maneuvering over the are a- 
lights that have flown at great 
speeds, then stopped suddenly 
and hovered before accelerating 
again, behaving, in other words, 
in ways that seem impossible for 
conventional aircraft. 

As the story goes, Lazar was 
hired to work at Area 51 in a 
lo cation designated S-4. The 
Navy wanted him to work on

advanced propulsion systems, 
and Lazar was given classified 
technical papers to read. Their 
contents amazed him; they de¬ 
scribed propulsion systems far in 
advance of anything convention¬ 
al physics could have conceived. 
" The power source is an anti ¬ 

matter reactor," he told Knapp. 
" They run gravity~amplifie rs. 
There is [sic] actually two parts 
to the drive mechanism. It's a 
bizarre technology. There is [sic] 
no physical hookups between 
any of the systems in there. They 
use gravity as a wave, using wa ve 

guides that look like microwa ves." 

The walls of the work areas 
displayed posters showing a disc 
ascending from the ground; the 
caption read, "They're here." In 
due course Lazar was taken into 
a hangar where he saw a disc. 
Although he was instructed to 
walk by the vehicle and not look 
directly at it, he touched it briefly 
as he passed it. Later he saw the 
object in flight and was also 
allowed to view eight other craft 
in connecting hangars separated 
by large bay doors. Each had a 
distinctive appearance but all 
were disc-shaped. One looked 
brand new, but another had a 
large hole in the bottom and a 
corresponding one at the top, 
leading him to speculate that a 
missile or anti-aircraft projectile 
had pierced it. 

His superiors told him nothing 



22 FATE/June 1990 



















UFO REPORTER 


about the nature of these craft or 
the circumstances of their recov¬ 
ery. Once, however, when he 
looked inside one, he saw "it had 
really small chairs," as if its pilots 
were of shorter-than-human 
stature. That caused things, he 
said, "to click together just all too 
fast." After observing the discs in 
the air, he was convinced that no 
terrestrial technology could have 
accomplished what he was see¬ 
ing. But what clinched matters 
for him was his discovery that an 
element unknown to earthly sci¬ 
ence, element 115, played a major 
role in~the development of the 

g ravity-harnessing technology . 

Five hundred pounds of it i s 

stored in lead casings . It would 

be, he said, "impossible to syn¬ 
thesize an element that heavy 
here on earth...The substance has 
to come from a place where 
super-heavy elements could have 
been produced naturally." 

Not even the U.S. Congress 
knows about any of this, Lazar 
claimed. The funding probably 
was hidden within the Star Wars 
budget, he thought.

Security was maintained by 
keeping employees in a state of 
nearly constant fear. "They did

"l received first prize in the drawing we had last night. I 
am sure reading some parts of your book has had influ¬ 
ences in the success I experienced... — D.W., Hillsboro, OR 

STOP BEING A VICTIM OF CHANCE! 

Read the amazing book that has changed thousands of lives! 


RICHES, LOVE, HEALTH, SPIRITUAL 
ADVANCEMENT... Whatever your Mind can 
"see" can be made to happen if you just know 
how! Learn to mobilize your Inner Resources 
and tap the limitless Energy/Matter potential of 
the Universe to manifest your desires. 

NO SPECIAL EQUIPMENT TO BUY. NO 
EXPENSIVE COURSES TO TAKE. NO 
MANTRAS TO MEMORIZE. IT IS INCREDI¬ 
BLY SIMPLEI The average person uses very 
little of the full creative power that is his. It's like 
the power locked in the atom — it's all there, in 
potential, but we don't know how to release it 
constructively. 

YOU MAY BE ALREADY USING THIS 
POWER BUT IN THE WRONG WAY! AND IT 
IS DOING YOU MORE HARM THAN GOOD! 

Some people do apply, correctly, this innate 
power without actually knowing what they are 
doing and achieve great success; most people, 
however, unknowingly use this power INCOR¬ 
RECTLY, and experience bad luck, failure, or 
at best an unfulfilled life. 

THE LLEWELLYN PRACTICAL GUIDE TO 
CREATIVE VISUALIZATION by DENNING & 
PHILLIPS changes that. Through an easy 
series of progressive exercises, your mind is 
applied CORRECTLY to bring desire into real¬ 
ization! Wealth, power, success, happiness... 
even psychic power... even what we call mag- 
ickal power and spiritual attainment! The power 
of the mind is not limited to, nor limited by, the 
material world. THE LLEWELLYN PRACTICAL 
GUIDE TO CREATIVE VISUALIZATION 
enables you to reach beyond, into the invisible 


worlds of Astral and Spiritual Forces. 

CREATIVE VISUALIZATION IS "SUCCESS 
POWER." What do we mean by “Success"? 
Not just being rich, or having all that you can 
desire. We mean living a FULL AND MEAN¬ 
INGFUL LIFE in which you actually accomplish 
whatever you set out to do—in being healthy, 
happy, secure; in your marriage, finances, edu¬ 
cation; in painting a picture or building a bridge; 
in top level performance on the job and in get¬ 
ting the job you want; in becoming the person 
you want to be. 

"This book has become practically my Bible 
and my friends over here are tremendously 
impressed with it and would also like to have 
their own copies." 

— Brend P., Tonbridge, Kent, England 

AND HERE'S AN ADDED BENEFIT — LUCK 
BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS. There is 
more to success than accomplishing one goal 
after another. There's what sometimes has 
been call "THE LUCK FACTOR," the ability to 
attract the Opportunities to make for success. 
Desire is a form of Energy, an "emotional elec¬ 
tricity." And when you feed electricity into some¬ 
thing it always creates a Magnetic Field. It is 
the general positive dynamic we commonly 
identify with self-confidence, charisma, poise, 
winning. It includes the "positive self-image" in 
which you see yourself as the kind of person 
you want to be—healthy, beautiful, surrounded 
by friends and opportunities. A POWERFUL 
Luck Factor will often seem to repel possibilities 
of injury or failure. It's an Aura or "Force Field" 
within which a special Environment is created.

MANY FAMOUS AND SUCCESSFUL MEN 
AND WOMEN USE CREATIVE VISUALIZA¬ 
TION ALL THE TIME, BUT KEEP IT THEIR 
OWN PERSONAL "SECRET." A young 
woman wanted to live in a distant country, but 
could see no prospect of getting there. As it 
meant a lot to her, she studied the language, 
and began Creative Visualization, with the 
"STAR” TECHNIQUE (CHAPTER 7). Then she 
was offered a vacation in another land; it was a 
beginning! On that vacation she exchanged 
addresses with several people. She kept up her 
"STAR" PRACTICE, and the next year, quite 
unexpectedly, one of these contacts, an older 
woman, wrote again. She had come into some 
money and wanted to travel further, and she 
invited the young woman along. Circumstances 
forced the older woman to return home—but 
the young woman remained, doing welfare 
work, in the very land of her dreams! 

"PICTURE" YOUR OWN SUCCESS STORY! 
Once you know and employ the principles of 
Creative Visualization (and the Secret Methods 
withheld until now) NO ONE CAN PREVENT 
YOU FROM ATTAINING MATERIAL WEALTH, 
PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS, HEALTH. PER¬ 
SONAL HAPPINESS. OR SPIRITUAL DEVEL¬ 
OPMENT. Only you can LIBERATE THE 
POWER and FOCUS IT TO TRANSFORM 
YOUR LIFE! 

"The kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 
chapter 17, v. 21) 

LEARN THE CAREFULLY GUARDED 
SECRET (UNTIL NOW!) FOR THE MOST 
SUPREMELY POTENT WAY TO BRING 
REALITY TO YOUR DREAMS, (p. 124). When 
you practice this Highly Charged method of 
Creative Visualization, there is literally NOTH¬ 
ING that can Withstand YOU. 


WIN THE APPRECIATION YOU DESERVE IN 
YOUR JOB... GET PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO 
YOUR IDEAS... PERSUADE PEOPLE TO 
ACT! Using the techniques of Creative 
Visualization puts you into a Positive 
Relationship with the dynamics of the Universe. 
Every creative act brings you into greater har¬

THE VIEW FROM ETERNITY 

by Vaughan Shelton 


History Is A FRAUD! 

To RUTH SHELTON'S unique clairvoyance, 
history was an open book. For 10 years she 
worked with her historian husband on 19th 
Century research, for two published books. His 
documentation showed her information 100% 
accurate. In the same period, she wrote a library 
of discourses on the origin, progress and future of 
mankind - refuting history books. 

Astounding data: Soul birth; advent of 
humanity; “missing link;” ancient cultures; 
cause of the “Flood;" all humans not human; 
incredible Essenes; Bible authorship; NO global 
disaster coming; future world order and tech¬ 
nology, etc. 196 pp.

TRUTH OR ? 

These are extraordinary claims. 
Readers should be warned that 
t he truth of these claims is far 

from certain. Elements of ambi¬ 
guity cloud the picture. For one 
thing, as Knapp reported, "Check¬ 
ing out Lazar's credentials 
proved to be a difficult task." 
Lazar claimed to have degrees 
from the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology, but MIT declare d 
it had never heard of him. A pur¬ 
po rted association with the 
Cal ifornia Institute of Technolog y 
also failed to check out. And later, 
when physicist-ufologi st Stanto n 
T. Friedman looked int o Lazar's 
b ackground, he found that Laz ar 
was not a member of the Amer ¬ 

i can Physical Soci ety 

Y6t other claims of Lazar's 
were verified, despite official 
denials. For example, he said he 
had worked with one of the 
world's largest particle-beam 
accelerators at the Los Alamos 
National Laboratories. When Los 
Alamos said this was not so, 
Knapp learned that it was "either 
mistaken or.. .lying." Lazar is list ¬ 
ed in a 1982 Los Alamos la b 
phone b ook, an d a news c lipping 
from the same year mentions 
Lazar's employment at the labo¬ 
ratory. Lazar said, "They're try-

TITANIC: PSYCHIC 
FOREWARNINGS OF A 
TRAGEDY 


Since that tragic night in April 1912, when the Titanic took 1,500 
passengers and crew members to their deaths in the freezing water, reports 
have come to light of people who, by word or deed, seemingly exhibited 
foreknowledge of the disaster. Many heeded the warnings and were saved, 
but others went ahead despite misgivings and were lost with the ship. 
Author George Behe investigates 135 fascinating cases which claimed to 
have a psychic element. With 50 photographs, many published here for the 
first time, TITANIC: PSYCHIC FOREWARNINGS OF A TRAGEDY provides 
an intriguing perspective on the fateful story. Just send $9.95 plus $2.00

ing to make me look nonexis¬ 
tent." 

During his investigation, 
Knapp had Lazar undergo a 
series of polygraph exami na¬ 
tions, with conflicting resul ts. 
The first examiner gave him two 
tests; Lazar passed one and 
flunked the other. Another exam¬ 
iner gave him four tests and 
declared him truthful. A third 
examiner studied the charts of 
the previous tests and endorsed 
the second examiner's conclu¬ 
sions. A fourth disagreed, saying 
it appeared to him that Lazar was 
reporting something he had 
heard, not something he had wit¬ 
nessed directly. The second ex¬ 
aminer opined that the ambigui¬ 
ties in the test results had to do 
not with the subject's dishonesty 
but with his acute anxiety about 
testifying to sensitive national- 
security, and possibly even life- 
threatening, matters. Knapp told 
his audience, "The polygra- 
phers...decided they would not 
issue a final statement on truth¬ 
fulness until more specific testing 
can be conducted. And that's 
where it stands." 

Lazar also underwent hypno¬ 
sis. The hypnotist, Layne Keck, 
was told only that Lazar wanted 
help in recalling the contents of 
papers, contents unspecified, he 
had seen. While hypnotized 
Lazar began speaking of pictures 
of "desks," or so Keck heard him 

30 FATE/June 1990 


saying; soon, though, he realized 
"it was discs that he was refer¬ 
ring to. And at that moment I 
realized we were into some¬ 
thing...pretty heavy." Keck, who 
often works with the police, con¬ 
cluded Lazar was telling the 
truth as he knew it. 

THE WORK GOES ON 
Both journalists and ufologists 
are pursuing the investigation. 
One UFO in vestigator. Gran t 
Cameron, tells me that so far the 
evidence suggests there is a "50- 
50 chance" the story is true. One 
point in Lazar's favor is that he 
has sought neither money nor 
additional publicity, and quite 
early in the game separated him¬ 
self from individuals who tried 
to exploit him or get him to 
endorse their own cover-up fan¬ 
tasies. Knapp's own investiga¬ 
tion, as reported on KLAS' 
evening news show, convinced 
him that Lazar is on the level. But 
the rest of us would be advised 
to be very, very cautious. One of 
life's lessons is that if something 
s ounds too good to be tru e, 
t here's a reason for it: i t is.

WHO'S SILLY NOW? 

It happens every June. Just as 
the spring thaw is finally reach¬ 
ing Scandinavia and the far 
north, someone plodding through 
the slush around one of the fjords 
of Sweden or Norway suddenly 
sees a fountain of bubbles and 
watches in amazement as a huge 
grey submarine roars to the sur¬ 
face of the icy waters. 

The alarm goes out. The 
phantom submarines are 
back! 

For generations, dat¬ 
ing all the way back to 
the early 1920s, mysteri¬ 
ous submarines have 
been appearing annually 
in the remote and inhos¬ 
pitable waterways of northern 
Scandinavia where few ships of 
any kind ever venture. And for 
generations the navies of several 
countries have tried in vain to 
trap them. 

In the 1930s, the authorities 
grumbled that the subs might 
belong to "liquor smugglers." 
The Nazis got the blame in the 


1940s. There were even rumors 
that the Germans were building 
elaborate underwater bases in 
the fjords of Norway during 
World War II. 

In the '60s and '70s, the Soviets 
were accused of sending their 
subs into the fjords for no appar¬ 
ent purpose. In 1972, the Nor¬ 
wegian government was nearly 
toppled by a major scan¬ 
dal when their navy had 
one of the subs cornered 
and it got away. Depth 
charges and the usual 
anti-submarine tactics 
fail in these cases. All 
sonar, radar, radio and 
other electrical equip¬ 
ment failed simultane¬ 
ously on all the Norwegian naval 
vessels in the '72 incident, en¬ 
abling the sub—or whatever it 
was—to escape. 

A few years ago, a Soviet sub¬ 
marine actually ran aground on 
Swedish turf and the angry 
Swedish government broke all 
diplomatic ties with the Soviet 
Union. But the episode did not

end the mystery. The phantom 
subs still appear every June, just 
as they have been doing for 70 
years, not only in Scandinavia 
but also in South America, 
Australia and a hundred other 
places. Forteans even have a 
name for them: USOs (unidenti¬ 
fied submarine objects). 

THE SILLY SEASON 

In the days when newspapers 
were everyone's main source of 
information, hardboiled journal¬ 
ists referred to the summer 
months as "the silly season." It 
was a time for bathing beauty 
contests, reports of phantom subs, 
sea serpents, and human interest 
stories that were ignored in the 
busier news periods. Today the 
silly season still generates silli¬ 
ness in the form of statements by 
politicians, dithering bureaucrats 
and almost mindless campaigns 
whipped up by TV news depart¬ 
ments trying to stimulate higher 
ratings with endless stories about 
menacing diseases, sexual weird¬ 
ness and garbage-strewn beach¬ 
es. Sewer journalism has replaced 
the "yellow" journalism of old. 
Crackpotism has become the 
national pastime and the silly 
season lasts all year long. 

SOLSTICE STRANGENESS 

Late in June, the Sun does the 
flip-flop that we know as the 
Summer Solstice. It pauses briefly 

32 FATE/June 1990 


in its wanderings across the sky 
around the 21st-24th of June and 
more strange things begin to 
happen. Even in very ancient 
times, people recognized the 
Summer Solstice as a very special 
time. The earliest religions made 
it an important festival day. 
Elaborate monuments and struc¬ 
tures were built in such*a way 
that the rising Sun would peep 
through carefully designed aper¬ 
tures only on the day of the sol¬ 
stice. Even today millions of peo¬ 
ple observe the solstice with so- 
called "Pagan" rituals and feasts. 

June 24th also marks the birth 
of ufology. On June 24th, 1947, 
Kenneth Arnold saw a group of 
strange objects whizzing around 
the mountains of Washington 
state and his report kicked off the 
first big flying saucer craze. The 
Summer Solstice has frequently 
produced a wave of saucer sight¬ 
ings ever since. Some think those 
saucers are somehow whipped 
.up by all of those praying Pagans. 

MISSING MINDS 

Every June the phantom sub¬ 
marines come out of hiding and 
while our navies are chasing 
USOs, the UFOs pop in for a 
visit. Then, as the thermometer 
rises, people begin to see large 
dark forms swimming around in 
Loch Ness, Lake Champlain, 
Chesapeake Bay and several 
other fresh water lakes in China, 


BEYOND THE KNOWN 


Siberia, Canada, etc. The monster 
mating season is in full swing! The 
politicians polish their tongues 
and the silly season is well under¬ 
way. 

AMNESIA IN 
JULY 

In July, anoth¬ 
er annual epi¬ 
demic begins. 

This one is even 
more bizarre than 
all those USOs 
and UFOs, but it 
takes place very 
quietly and not 
even the FBI 
tries to catalog it. 

In police stations 
and hospitals all 
over the country, 
confused citizens 
appear and ask 
for help. They cannot remember 
who they are or where they are 
from. They are victims of amne¬ 
sia. Some of them eventually 
regain their identity and return to 
their homes. Others are not so 
lucky and have to construct a 
whole new life for themselves. 
They seem to come from all walks 
of life, span all age groups and 
are relatively normal except fpr 
the fact that their pasts have 
somehow been obliterated. Some 
prove to have come from places 
very far—thousands of miles 
away—from where they sudden¬ 


ly find themselves. They may 
have been missing from their 
homes for months—sometimes 
even for years—before they final¬ 


ly surfaced. 

Back in the 1920s, author 
Charles Fort noted a few cases of 
this phenomenon, just as he 
observed that people with certain 
specific names seemed to be dis¬ 
appearing. "Someone is collect¬ 
ing Ambroses," he suggested. 
Actually, during these annual 
amnesia waves there do seem to 
be odd correlations in the names. 
One year the name Maddox 
turned up in several cases. In 
another year (1969), Hill was the 
name of several scattered amne- 


It would take heavy machinery 
like tractors to do this kind of 
damage. The police usually try 
to blame the usual imaginary 
bands of restless teenagers 
despite the dearth of footprints* 
tire tracks or other tangible 
evidence. In case after case, as 
many as 100 tombstones have 
been flattened in a single night. 


June 1990/FATE 33 




sia victims. 

Of course, some of these inci¬ 
dents prove to have a very logical 
explanation. The victim banged 
his or her head, lost his memory 
and wandered off. There was 
nothing too unusual or supernat¬ 
ural about it. But other cases defy 
logical explanations. 

And why do so many of these 
amnesia victims surface in the 
month of July? That's the real 
puzzle. Is somebody out there 
still collecting Ambroses—and 
Hills and Maddoxes? 

PHANTOM VANDALS 

Another summertime mystery 
that attracts very little notice is 
the cemetery vandalism that baf¬ 
fles local police everywhere. 
Large, heavy tombstones are 
found knocked over in neat rows. 
Many are reinforced with thick 
steel rods which have been bro¬ 
ken off like toothpicks. It would 
take heavy machinery like trac¬ 
tors to do this kind of damage. 
The police usually try to blame 
the usual imaginary bands of 
restless teenagers despite the 
dearth of footprints, tire tracks or 
other tangible evidence. In case 
after case, as many as 100 tomb¬ 
stones have been flattened in a 
single night. The local police 
never realize that the same thing 
has happened in scores of other 
cemeteries around the country. 


No teenager has ever been 
caught attacking tombstones. 
Real vandalism, which happens 
only rarely, usually consists of 
writing obscenities or racist 
remarks on the headstones in 
ethnic cemeteries. 

These are just some of the 
many unusual events that go 
largely unnoticed every summer. 
It is possible, even probable, that 
your local newspaper will be 
mentioning some of them in the 
weeks ahead. If so, there are two 
national organizations that 
would like to receive copies of 
your clippings (in addition to the 
columnists here at FATE, of

ON THE 

PSYCHIC FRONTIER 

By D. Scott Rogo 



ARE ALL TYPES OF PSY 

FORMS OF ONE THING? 

Some years ago, I was em¬ 
ployed by a small parapsycholo¬ 
gy laboratory in Durham, North 
Carolina. Computer technology 
was rapidly developing and a 
second laboratory in the city had 
purchased a set-up for $100,000. 
(It took up an entire wall but 
didn't possess the capa¬ 
bilities of a modem per¬ 
sonal computer.) My 
superior was fascinated 
with computer technolo¬ 
gy and the promise it 
held for parapsychology. 

He explained that per¬ 
haps some day we could 
feed the details of hun¬ 
dreds of ESP experiments into 
computer banks. The computer 
could then scan through to dis¬ 
cover the specific factors that led 
to the success of the best experi¬ 
ments. 

That conversation took place 
close to 20 years ago, but the real¬ 
ization of the dream is upon us 
now. Here is what computer tech¬ 


nology is contributing to the exper¬ 
imental study of precognition. 

PRECOGNITION 
As I wrote in my December 
1989 column, significant labora¬ 
tory evidence has been collected 
"proving" the existence of pre¬ 
cognition. To some extent people 
can "see" into the future. 

But there is an aspect 
of precognition I didn't 
discuss in that column: 
The phenomenon really 
doesn't work terribly 
well when it is compared 
to other forms of psi. 

For years, parapsychol¬ 
ogists have believed that 
psi—telepathy, clairvoy¬ 
ance and precognition—repre¬ 
sents some sort of uniform phe¬ 
nomenon. This was the view¬ 
point of J.B. Rhine, who felt that 
there was little difference in the 
"power" some people use to look 
into a person's mind, into a 
sealed box or into the future. Psi 
might be conceptualized as a gun 
being fired in different directions. 



D. Scott Rogo 



This concept seemed logical 
enough, since several of the early 
Duke University "gifted" sub¬ 
jects could readily exhibit telepa¬ 
thy, clairvoyance or precognition 
when challenged with the task. 

But there is growing evidence 
that this viewpoint could be mis¬ 
taken. Perhaps different forms of 
psi rely upon separate mental 
processes. 

THE WORK OF 

CHARLES TART 

This possibility was first 
demonstrated by Dr. Charles 
Tart, a psychologist at the Uni¬ 
versity of California, Davis. In 
the early 1980s, he noticed that 
throughout the early years of ESP 
testing, some exceptional labora¬ 
tory subjects had scored remark¬ 
ably well using standard ESP 
cards. Sometimes they correctly 
guessed the geometrical shapes 
printed on 18 or even 25 cards in 
a row (by chance a person should 
only guess 5 per run of 25 cards). 
But nothing comparable was ever 
reported in the experimental lit¬ 
erature on precognition—i.e., 
experiments in which the sub¬ 
jects were requested to guess the 
order of the cards before they 
were even shuffled. 

This discovery led Dr. Tart to 
compare the success rates of real¬ 
time ESP (experiments exploring 
clairvoyance and telepathy) with 
precognition experiments. He 

36 FATE/June 1990 


scoured parapsychology's experi¬ 
mental literature and chose the 
best real-time experiments (53 
studies) and the best precognitive 
ones (32 studies) published 
between 1937 and 1975. 

By comparing the rates of 
information transmitted by psi in 
these experimen ts, he discovered 
that real-time ESP works up to 10 

times better than precognition ! 

Such a discovery doesn't seem 

consistent with the concept that 
psi, in its different guises, is some 
sort of uniform process. 

Dr. Tart published his findings 
in 1983 in a long, technical paper 
entitled "Information acquisitio n 
r ates in ESP experiments: preco g¬ 
nition does not work as welT a s 
present-time ESP ." (See the Jour¬ 

nal of the American Society for 
Psychical Research, Vol. 77.) 
There he offers three explana¬ 
tions for his findings: 

1) Perhaps subjects taking part 
in precognition experiments per¬ 
ceive the task as difficult, thereby 
inhibiting themselves from scor¬ 
ing well. 

2) Real-time ESP and precog¬ 
nition may rely on different men¬ 
tal processes, one better than the 
other. 

3) External reality could be 
such that it is more difficult to 
"collect" information from the 
future than from the present. 

Dr. Tart eventually rejected the 
first explanation. In his book 










ON THE PSYCHIC FRONTIER 


Open Mind, Discriminating Min d 

(San Francisco, Harper and Row, 

1990), he concedes that cultural 
bias with regard to precognition 
could explain his findings; but he 
adds, "If that is so, why is the 
idea of precognition so unaccept¬ 
able? I am not inclined to put too 
much weight on this explanation. 
Cultural bias is very important, 
as I emphasize throughout this 
book; but in the hundreds of peo¬ 
ple tested for precognition over 
the years you would think there 
would be an occasional person 
who hadn't absorbed the cultural 
prejudice that well, and so might 
try hard and score very well on 
precognition." 

COLLECTING THE DATA 

Could it be possible to make 
precognition more reliable in the 
laboratory? Designing better pre¬ 
cognition experiments might be a 
step in the right direction. 

This is the precise issue that 
researchers at the Psychophysical 
Research Laboratories in Prince¬ 
ton, New Jersey, recently began 
exploring. (I reported in my 
January column that PRL is clos¬ 
ing because of financial prob¬ 
lems, but researchers there com¬ 
pleted this project and their offi¬ 
cial paper is pending publica¬ 
tion.) It is the exact project first 
suggested to me back in Durham, 
when unlimited computer re¬ 
sources were only a dream. 


Charles Honorton (the lab's 
director) and Diane C. Ferrari'N 
scanned parapsychology's litera- \ 
ture from 1935 to 1987 in order to J 
find and computer analyze every 
published precognition experi- I 
ment. They eventually found 309 / 
experiments conducted by 62 
researchers. The experiments 
relied upon several different 
designs. Some had subjects 
guessing the order of ESP cards 
shuffled months later, while oth¬ 
ers were computer experiments 
in which the subjects guessed 
events taking place only millisec¬ 
onds later. By looking at the sta¬ 
tistical results of these experi¬ 
ments, the researchers could easi¬ 
ly see t hat precognition is a weak 
phenomenon. Despite this prob- 
lem, ho wever, 30 per cent of the 
e xperiments they located repo rt¬ 
ed "extrachance” scoring. 

The computer scan revealed 
that four primary factors were 
involved: —^ 

1) Subjects with a prior history 
of successful ESP scoring in the 
lab performed better on precog¬ 
nition experiments than unselect¬ 
ed subjects. 

2) Better results were procured 
when the subjects were tested 
individually rather than in 


groups. 

3) Subjects given some sort of \ 
feedback scored better than those ) 
not offered this information. ^ 

4) Experiments into the imme- 


June1990/FATE 37 








diate future succeeded better 
than experiments into the distant 
future. 

The fourth factor isolated by 
the PRL researchers could be the 
most significant. It suggests tha t 
precognition's efficiency is com ¬ 

promised by temporal factors . 
The PRL researchers even discov- 

ered a consistent temporal effect 
in their data, with the success 
r ates of the precognition exper i¬ 
ments exponentially falling o ff 
with time. 

This pattern could be explained 
by Dr. Tart's third suggestion: 
that the fabric of reality is such 
that it becomes increasingly diffi¬ 
cult to collect information from 
further temporal points. But by 
looking into their data more 
closely, they found that the tem¬ 
poral distance effect in their 
st udy was primarily linked to 

t hose experiments employing 

unselected subject s. Selected or 

"gifted" subjects demonstrated 
less scoring problems when chal¬ 
lenged with far-distant precogni¬ 
tion. This pattern suggested that 
e xceptional ESP subjects can sim - 

ply overcome some sort of psy¬ 
chological bias. 

The PRL research leads us to 
wonder why are some people 
biased against precognition? Is it 
because there is something about 
precognition is intrinsically 
frightening? 

Tart is particularly interested 
38 FATE/June 1990 


in this possibility. In Open Mind, 
Discriminating Mind he writes, 
"Suppose you could go to a para¬ 
psychology laboratory next week 
and receive a treatment that 
made you strongly precognitive. 
Some advantages are clear: You 
could call your broker because 
you have a good idea as to what 
stocks will go up or down. You 
could decide not to visit city A 
next week because you know 
that an earthquake is coming. 
This could be appealing. 

"But do we really want the full 
burden of precognitive ability? 
Do you want to know about com¬ 
ing tragedies to loved ones that 
you may not be able to prevent? 
Do you want to bear the laughter 
and rejection of others when you 
intervene in their lives with the 
explanation that you're acting on 
the basis of a 'psychic vision'? Do 
you want to feel the responsibili¬ 
ty of intervening? Do you want 
to have to judge whether you 
should intervene or not? If a par¬ 
ticularly nasty person is going to 
be run down by a car at the next 
intersection, do you try to rescue 
him? Do you want to know when 
your friends are going to die? 
When you are going to die?" 

In light of these possibilities, is 
it really surprising that people 
shy away from precognition 
when challenged to demonstrate 
it in the laboratory? Perhaps not.

*LIZAI?D MAN- 
' CPEATUPE FI?OM 
: BLACK LAGOON? 

I Have received numerous let¬ 
ters from readers of this column 
requesting additional informa¬ 
tion on the famous Lizard Man, 
the scaly greenish-brown crea¬ 
ture with glowing red eyes from 
Scape Ore Swamp near Bishop- 
ville. South Carolina. 

During the summer of 
1988, haunting accounts 
of encounters with this 
strange entity escalated 
into one of the most 
highly-publicized mon¬ 
ster flaps of all time. The 
Lizard Man was the mon¬ 
ster of the last decade Mark Chorvinsky 



and is destined to occupy a hal¬ 
lowed position in the American 
monster pantheon. 

Lizard Man owes much of his 
celebrity to witness Chris Davis' 
retelling of the dramatic June 30, 
1988 confrontation between him¬ 
self and a seven-foot-tall green, 
scaly creature with glowing red 
eyes. Seventeen-year-old Davis 


was on Browntown Road in 
Bishopville when he saw the 
entity run toward him on two 
legs from a field about 30 yards 
away. Davis jumped into his car 
and his moonlit flight from the 
monster (during which the crea¬ 
ture allegedly jumped onto the 
hood) captured the attention of 
the international media and 
made the Lizard Man a 
star. This chilling, har¬ 
rowing encounter was 
not the first sighting of 
the Lizard Man, though, 
and it would not be the 
last. The creature caught 
up with the vehicle, 
grabbed the door handle, 
and jumped onto the 


roof of the car, enabling Davis to 
see that the creature had three 
fingers with long black finger¬ 
nails. This incident became 
famous as a Lizard Man sight¬ 
ings, but in fact most investiga¬ 
tors believed at the time that 
Davis saw a skunk ape or 
Bigfoot, not a lizard creature. 

It may be very significant that 


39 





the little-publicized fact that 
Chris Davis said he heard a story 
about an overgrown, slimy lizard 
in that area as far back as two 
years ago, but that he "didn't pay 
attention to it at the time." (He 
obviously paid some attention to 
it or he wouldn't have remem¬ 
bered it two years later, and the 
extent to which it lurked in his 
subconscious may have some 
bearing on his case). 

A TASTE FOP CWPOME 

Davis kept this encountef 
quiet until another strange inci-' 
dent occurred. On the morning of 
Friday, July 15, 1988, Tom and 
Mary Waye woke up and found 
their Ford LTD all "chewed up." 
The vehicle was covered with 
sand, scratches, and teeth marks. 
Chrome moulding was ripped 
off, the hood ornament was 
snapped, and wires were man¬ 
gled from the underside of the 
car engine. Hair samples found 
on the car, numerous small 
tracks, and the chewed wires led 
many to determine that the prob¬ 
able cause for this much-publi¬ 
cized event was a fox. Before the 
fox determination was made, 
however, this incident provoked 
Sheriff Liston Truesdale to inves¬ 
tigate rumors of several sightings 
of a strange humanoid monster 
in the area. 

Truesdale learned that the first 
Lizard Man encounter of 1988 

40 FATE/June 1990 


occurred one evening during the 
third week of June when a 
strange, huge beast with big, red¬ 
dish eyes jumped out from the 
woods at then 32-year-old 
George Hollomon and his broth¬ 
er (friend?) when they were get¬ 
ting water from an artesian well 
at the bridge on Scape Ore 
Swamp in Browntown, SC. 

^ Friday night, July 15th, 1988, a 
man contacted the Bishopville 
Sheriff's office and said he had 
run over a huge creature "with 
an alligator face" on Browntown 
Road's Scape Ore Swamp Bridge, 
but nothing was found. The fol¬ 
lowing week, Joseph Thomas of 
Browntown heard noises outside 
his house, and upon investigat¬ 
ing, saw the Lizard Man standing 
by his 1974 Ford LTD. Mr. 
Thomas described the creature as 
"big as anything with glowing 
red eyes." On Sunday night, July 
24, 1988, at 3 a.m., teenagers 
Rodney Nolf, Shane Stokes and 
their dates reported that a seven- 
foot-tall creature with glowing 
eyes dashed in front of their car 
across US-15 at 1-20, leaped over 
a six-foot fence, and rambled off 
into the woods. 

UZAPDMANIA 

The Lee County Sheriff's office 
was plagued with as many as 100 
calls per day requesting more 
information, necessitating the 
installation of a Lizard Man 


OUR STRANGE WORLD 


Hotline. On many nights in the 
last two weeks in July, 75 or more 
hunters would scour the Scape 
Ore Swamp searching for the 
creature. On Saturday night, July 
30th, there were an estimated 
300-400 people roaming the 

swamps in search of a creature 

that had attained "instant leg¬ 
end" status. 

After the Hollomon, Davis 
and Waye cases, the sightings of 
a large unknown creature near 
the Scape Ore swamp continued. 
"One Browntown resident claimed 
that their trailer was 
scratched, clawed 
and scraped in an 
area in back of their 
mobile home. The 
owners believe this 
to be the work of 
the Lizardman," ac¬ 
cording to the pri¬ 
vately-published 
Lee County Lizard 
Gazette, vol. 1, p 1. 

Eugene Bracey and 
Leroy Black, Brown- 
town residents, de¬ 
scribe hearing odd 
noises at night 
around their houses and their 
dogs barked. Bracey and Black 
also state that they have spoken 
to unidentified eyewitnesses who 
say that the creature stood 
approximately six feet tall. 

"Various Browntown residents 
have mentioned that they have 


spotted the thing now being 
referred to as Lizardman, along 
backroads leading to 1-20, noting 
that motorists could not help but 
see it," according to the Lee 
County Lizard Gazette. The Gazette 
also mentioned an unconfirmed 
report that a local church had 
water hoses stripped from out¬ 
side faucets, but no other damage 
was reported. 

On August 12, 1988, a Lee 
County man told police that he 
had seen something "not hu¬ 


man" running across a field by S. 
C. 527 in Elliot (Lee Co. Observer, 
Bishopville, SC, August 17,1988). 
On August 15, 1988, around 7:30 
P.M., a Lee County woman in¬ 
formed officials that she had seen 
a hominid creature standing in 

June 1990/FATE 41 


[They] were stunned to find a 
fresh set of three-toed, clawed,

one-inch deep into the road 
and crossing the squad car’s 
previous tire tracks. Whatever 
left the prints had crossed the 
road only minutes before. 









front of her door. (Lee Co. 
Observer, Bishopville, SC, 
August 17, 1988.) Soon after, an 
unidentified Armed Services 
officer sighted a little dinosaur 
in the area. While his name has 
not been released by Sheriff 
Truesdale, it is known that the 
report was taken very seriously. 


MONSTER TRACKS? 

On July 24,1988, the same night 
as the US-15 sighting, Lee County 
deputy Wayne Atkinson and state 
trooper Mike Hodge investigated 
the area around Bramlett Road, a 
dirt road near the Scape Ore 
Swamp. The two officers stopped 
and got out of their cars to look at 
some toppled garbage cans, then 
drove down the road and turned 
around. They backtracked up 
Bramlett Road, they again stopped 
at the garbage can site to investi¬ 
gate a nine-foot-high broken tree 
limb and were stunned to find a 
fresh set of three-toed, clawed, 14 
x 7-inch footprints embedded one- 
inch deep into the road and cross¬ 
ing the squad car's previous tire 
tracks. Whatever left the prints had 
crossed the road only minutes 
before. 

Officers Atkinson and Hodge 
followed the tracks for 300 yards. 
During this time, they had a feel¬ 
ing that "something was watch¬ 
ing them." Police dogs were 
brought in, but could not pick up 
any scent. The officers, suspecting 

42 FATE/June 1990 


a hoax, looked for human prints 
and vehicle markings, but came 
up empty-handed. Plaster casts 
were made of the bizarre tracks. 

Monstrous tracks found in 
1977 on a farm owned by D. W. 
Berry in Saluda County, 35 miles 
west of Columbia, SC were exact¬ 
ly the same size. However, Berry 
now relates that some of his bud¬ 
dies had insinuated recently that 
the tracks had been a prank and 
had been carved out of a cedar 
tree by them. 

BROTHER ELMORE 

There have been a number of 
rumors in Brown town concerning 
a gentleman known only as 
"Brother Elmore." Evidently, 
Brother Elmore has a beanfield 
adjacent to the location of Chris 
Davis' encounter, and some resi¬ 
dents have mentioned that 
Brother Elmore had made up tales 
of a local swamp monster to scare 
people away from his field. I have 
come across numerous instances 
of monsters being used as a "psy¬ 
chological scarecrow" to instill 
fear in people. Browntown resi¬ 
dent Cheryl Maples said that 
Elmore has taken husks from peas 
that he grows and fashioned them 
into a costume that he wears to 
frighten people who he thinks 
might steal from him. Yet another 
Brother Elmore rumor is that the 
crusty old guy actually shot the 
Lizard Man. Sheriff Truesdale 


OUR STRANGE WORLD 


spoke with Brother Elmore, how¬ 
ever, and concluded that Elmore 
had not shot it and had not start¬ 
ed the rumor that he shot it. 

One hoax came to light when 
an airman at claimed that he shot 
the creature and recovered blood 
and scale samples. He later admit¬ 
ted that he fabricated the shooting 
to keep the legend alive, and was 
arrested by Sheriff Truesdale. 
Many jumped to the conclusion 
that the entire case was a hoax 
based solely on this event. 

Sheriff Truesdale started out as 
a disbeliever, but he now believes 
that there is some strange crea¬ 
ture prowling the Scape Ore 
Swamp. Perhaps the strongest 
Lizard Man sighting yet, oc¬ 
curred on August 28, 1988. An 
Army Colonel whose name has 
not been released by the police 
was driving on McDuffy Road, 
near Scape Ore Swamp, when a 
creature that he describes as a 
small dinosaur ran across the 
road in front of his car. There 
have been several additional 


sightings as well as new tracks 
that were found in the snow this 
past winter. Also, there is evi¬ 
dence that animals in the area 
have been found decapitated. I 
am now investigating these 
reports and will report on them 
in the future. 

HUGO VERSUS LIZARD MAN 

Last year. Hurricane Hugo 
decimated parts of South Carolina, 
including major damage to Scape 
Ore Swamp, the lair of the Lizard 
Man. I have a strong feeling, 
though, that we have not heard 
the last of this intriguing creature.

THE DEADLY RWVDtfD 


By Peggy Hughley 


A kimono was successively owned 
by three teenage girls, each of 
whom died before wearing it. The 
kimono was believed to be so 
unlucky that it was actually cremat¬ 
ed by a Japanese priest in February 
of 1657. 


A wind sprung up as the garment 
burned, spreading the flames. The 
resulting fire destroyed three-quar¬ 
ters of Tokyo—300 temples, 500 
palaces, 9,000 shops and 61 bridges— 
and killed 100,000 people.

THE TITANIC 


A DISASTER FORESEEN? 



Was the fate of the mighty Titanic predicted in a novel? FATE reveals the truth 
about this popular myth while disclosing just one of the many mysteries that sur¬ 
rounds the death of one of the world’s most famous ships. 

By George M. Behe 


She has lain in dark silence for 
three quarters of a century now; 
lost in her memories, a prisoner of 
the icy blackness that surrounds 
her. But she is not alone, for she 
did not die alone. Her death 
throes claimed the lives of two 
thirds of her passengers and 
crew—1,500 people—whose pres¬ 
ence was felt by the explorers 
who finally discovered her resting 
place. Tom in half, she now lies on 
the seabed, her innards scattered 
around her in the desolation. 

Once she was a queen, the 
largest and most beautiful ship in 
the world. A few lucky people 
can still remember viewing her 
magnificence with their own 


eyes. Fewer still are those who 
sailed on her and were lucky 
enough to survive. But everyone, 
even today, recognizes her name. 

She was the Titanic. 

The month of April 1912 was a 
high point in the annals of the 
White Star Line, one of Britain's 
leading steamship lines. RMS 
Titanic, the newest addition to 
their stable of thoroughbreds, 
was about to enter service as a 
carrier of passengers and mail. 
She was the largest moving 
object ever created by the hand of 
man—882 feet long, 92 feet wide, 
46,000 tons. A double bottom had 
been built into her hull, with 


44 


THE TITANIC—A DISASTER FORESEEN? 


transverse watertight bulkheads 
spaced along her length dividing 
her into 16 watertight compart¬ 
ments. These, it was felt, would 
be more than enough to insure 
the ship's safety in the event of a 
mishap. Any water which some¬ 
how managed to get through the 
double bottom and enter the hull 
would be contained in one of 
these compartments, allowing 
the rest of the ship to continue 
normal operations. 

AN ACCIDENT? 

UNTHINKABLE! 

The mere sight of the Titanic 
was enough to inspire total confi¬ 
dence. Her four great funnels 
towered into the sky, a symbol of 
the final mastery of man over 
Nature. A serious accident to the 
ship was unthinkable. Indeed, 
her master. Captain Edward J. 
Smith, has been quoted as say¬ 
ing, "Modern shipbuilding has 
gone beyond that." 

The British Board of Trade 
seems to have complacently 
agreed with him; their lifeboat 
regulations, long out of date, 
required that any ship of 10,000 
tons or more must carry only 16 
wooden lifeboats. The Titanic, at 
46,000 tons, was carrying the 
required 16 boats, with an addi¬ 
tional four Englehardt "collapsi¬ 
ble" boats thrown in for good 
measure. Its total lifesaving 
capacity was 1,178 people. The 


Titanic was certified to carry a 
maximum of 3,000 people, but no 
one seems to have given much 
thought to this enormous defi¬ 
ciency in lifesaving equipment. 
Word of mouth had it that the 
great vessel was unsinkable, so 
what was the use of cluttering up 
the deck with more lifeboats? 

A single look at the sumptu¬ 
ous public rooms on the great 
vessel made one almost forget 
that he was even on a ship. What 
could possibly go wrong? 

PREDICTIONS OF DOOM 

And yet, there were people 
who became absolutely certain 
that something was going to hap¬ 
pen to the Titanic on her maiden 
voyage. Although a few of these 
people had no direct connection 
with the ship, others were among 
those who had booked their pas¬ 
sage on the great liner. Of the lat¬ 
ter, several people actually can¬ 
celled their passage, preferring to 
take any other ship rather than 
sail on the Titanic. Others, in spite 
of grave misgivings, retained 
their bookings for the maiden 
voyage of the great vessel. 

Many of them paid for that 
decision with their lives when 
the Titanic foundered after strik¬ 
ing an iceberg in the mid-Atlantic. 

THE FUTILITY "PREDICTION" 

The best-known "premoni¬ 
tion" of the Titanic disaster was 


June 1990/FATE 45 


probably not a premonition at all. 
It occurred in 1898, 14 years 
before the maiden voyage of the 
Titanic, and, on the surface, bears 
striking similarities to what actu¬ 
ally befell the great liner. 

This "premonition" came in 
the form of a novel by Morgan 
Robertson entitled Futility, which 
told the story of the Titan, the 
largest ship in the world. Her 
dimensions were roughly compa¬ 
rable to those of the real Titanic; 
her equipment was the most 
modern, her crewmen the best. 
The Titan set sail one April day 
with a full complement of pas¬ 
sengers, but with insufficient 
lifeboats to accommodate every¬ 
one on board. 

To help insure a record cross¬ 
ing, great triangular sails had 
been hoisted on each of the 
Titan's two masts. Her master 
was so intent on making a speed 
record that, when his vessel acci¬ 
dentally rammed a windjammer, 
no effort was made to stop and 
pick up survivors. One of the 
doomed sailors in the water 
shouted up a curse, calling on God 
to avenge the heartless behavior 
of the departing steamer. 

Later, on a foggy but moonlit 
night, the Titan encountered an 
iceberg in the mid-Atlantic and 
was unable to turn in time to pre¬ 
vent a collision. The big steamer 
ran up onto the sloping shelf of 
an iceberg, sliding forward and 

46 FATE/June 1990 


upward onto the ice until she 
was almost completely out of the 
water. The vessel toppled heavily 
onto her starboard side, her 
machinery smashing down and 
rupturing her side plates. The 
Titan then slid back down the ice 
slope into the sea, her starboard 
lifeboats being smashed in the 
process. Only a handful of people 
survived when the vessel sank. 

RESEARCH, NOT PSYCHISM 

The above story about Robert¬ 
son's fictional Titan is usually the 
first one trotted out by authors 
discussing psychic aspects of the 
Titanic disaster. Several bogus 
stories have arisen concerning 
the circumstances under which 
Robertson's novel was written. 
These usually claim that the 
author either dreamed the details 
of his novel or that he "went into 
a trance" and "saw" the events of 
the novel unfold, later writing 
the details down in the form of 
fiction. These tales are untrue. 
Robertson's novel was written in 
the same mundane manner so 
well understood by all authors— 
the "seat of the pants technique." 

The similarities between Rob¬ 
ertson's novel and the sinking of 
the Titanic are obvious, and many 
authors have played up these 
parallels through the years. Tables 
have even been compiled com¬ 
paring the specifications of the 
two vessels and the circum- 


THE TITANIC—A DISASTER FORESEEN? 



stances of their sinkings. The 
similarities seem uncanny at first, 
but, when considered in a broad¬ 
er context, they are really perfect¬ 
ly understandable. 

Morgan Robertson had wished 
to write about the greatest ship in 
the world, but he did not want 
his literary creation to be rapidly 
overtaken and outdated by new 
advances in shipbuilding. To 
avoid this, he simply projected 
the dimensions of his fictional 
ship a couple of steps ahead of 
the technology of 1898. By postu¬ 
lating a ship of a certSin length, 
he could roughly calculate her 
tonnage, carrying capacity and 
other specifications. Although it 


thus becomes obvious that physi¬ 
cal similarities between the Titan 
and the Titanic would be almost 
automatic. One glaring difference 
between the two ships is immedi¬ 
ately apparent: Robertson still 
envisioned the continued use of 
auxiliary sail in steamers of the 
future, a characteristic which the 
Titanic did not possess. 

As to the insufficient number 
of lifeboats on the fictional Titan, 
Robertson was utilizing a trend 
which was visible even in 1898. 
He knew of the lack of regula¬ 
tions governing an increase in the 
number of required lifeboats as 
ship sizes increased. The author 
merely projected this trend to its 

June 1990/FATE 47 



extreme, but logical, end result— 
namely, a huge liner foundering 
with too few boats to save her 
passengers. 

The plot of Robertson's novel 
required that the Titan be de¬ 
stroyed very suddenly, with only 
a handful of survivors escaping 
the disaster. The author ruled out 
a storm at sea as being his instru¬ 
ment of destruction, since any 
storm capable of destroying the 
largest ship in the world would 
also destroy her lifeboats (along 
with the survivors necessary for 
the novel's conclusion). A colli¬ 
sion with another ship was also 
ruled out, as was a shipboard 
fire, as these disasters would not 
have destroyed the Titan quickly 
enough (and would have intro¬ 
duced more lifeboats and sur¬ 
vivors into the story, interfering 
with the ending which Robertson 
had planned for his novel). 

It appears that a spectacular 
collision with an iceberg was the 
only mishap that Robertson 
could envision which might 
simultaneously destroy the Titan 
and still fulfill all of his plot 
requirements. Robertson himself 
was a seaman, and he knew how 
dangerous an iceberg in the ship¬ 
ping lanes could be. Indeed, this 
danger was merely confirmed in 
1912 when an iceberg claimed 
the Titanic on her maiden voy¬ 
age. 

The most outstanding similari- 
48 FATE/June 1990 


ty between the Titanic and Rob¬ 
ertson's fictional ship was the 
author's choice of the name 
"Titan." If he had instead chris¬ 
tened his ship the Neptune, it is 
unlikely that many people would 
have recalled his novel 14 years 
later when the Titanic went down. 
Indeed, this fortuitous choice of 
names is probably the only thing 
which rescued Robertson's novel 
from complete obscurity. 

Although many odd coinci¬ 
dental occurrences (including the 
above novel) can be cited in rela¬ 
tion to the Titanic disaster, other 
cases have origins which do not 
seem to be rooted in coincidence. 

During the writing of my book. 
Titanic: Psychic Forewarnings of a 
Tragedy, I was able to compile a 
list of 29 cases which I felt were 
possibly psychic in nature. I felt 
that an additional 35 accounts 
contained enough detail to be 
classed as probable psychic phe¬ 
nomena, with many of these cases 
being of a precognitive nature. 

A REAL PREMONITION 

The remainder of this article 
will be devoted to the examination 
of one of these latter cases—a 
very poignant story involving the 
death of the percipient herself. 
The incident in question took 
place in KfVkendbright, Scotland, 
on the night of April 14,1912. 

W. Rex Sowden was the captain 
in charge of the city's Salvation 


THE TITANIC—A DISASTER FORESEEN? 


Army Corps, which had taken on 
the responsibility of caring for a 
little orphan girl named Jessie. 
The child was lying in bed dan¬ 
gerously ill, and it was necessary 
for someone to remain with her 
at all times to monitor her condi¬ 
tion. Sowden knew this, and, on 
the night of April 14th, he went 
to bed confident that the little girl 
was being properly looked after. 

Shortly before 11 p.m. someone 
knocked desperately on Sowden's 
bedroom door, calling, "Will you 
please come at once. Captain? 
Jessie is dying." 

Captain Sowden immediately 
got out of bed, dressed and hur¬ 
ried to the room of the little 
orphan girl. He sat at her bedside 
for a few minutes until, at exactly 
11 o'clock, Jessie suddenly sat up 
in her bed. When she saw Sowden 
sitting beside her, she begged 
him, "Hold my hand. Captain. I 
am so afraid. Can't you see that 
big ship sinking in the water?" 

Sowden thought that the girl's 
mind was wandering, and he 
attempted to comfort her, telling 
her that she had been having a 
nightmare. Jessie knew better. 

"No, the ship is sinking," she 
told him. "Look at all those people 
who are drowning...Wally is play¬ 
ing a fiddle and is coming to you." 

To humor her. Captain Sowden 
looked around the room without 
seeing anything out of the ordi¬ 
nary. He gently laid the little girl 


back onto the bed, covered her 
again, and then watched as she 
lapsed into a coma. 

Several hours went by while 
Captain Sowden sat faithfully by 
Jessie's bedside, but the child lay 
almost motionless beside him. 
Then, unexpectedly, Sowden 
heard the latch on the bedroom 
door move. Assuming that some¬ 
one was coming to check on the 
little girl, the captain arose from 
his seat. Opening the bedroom 
door he was surprised to find the 
hallway empty, but then, quite 
suddenly, he had the eerie feeling 
that someone had moved past 
him and entered the bedroom. 

Captain Sowden rushed back 
to Jessie's bedside and saw that 
the moment of crisis had arrived. 
Death was only a few moments 
away. The heartbroken man 
stood looking down at the little 
girl when she again opened her 
eyes and looked at him. 

"My mother has come to take 
me to heaven," said Jessie quiet¬ 
ly. Captain Sowden held her 
hand for a few moments, and the 
little girl then died peacefully. 

As Captain Sowden rose slowly 
from the child's bedside, he again 
heard the latch on the bedroom 
door being lifted. Once again he 
found no one visible when he 
stepped into the hallway. Captain 
Sowden felt certain, though, that 
little Jessie and her mother had left 
the bedroom together. 

June 1990/FATE 49 


WALLY THE FIDDLER 

The vision of the sinking ship 
which Jessie had experienced 
took place at 11 p.m. in Scotland. 
Allowing for the difference in 
longitude, this was about three- 
and-a-half hours before the 
Titanic struck the iceberg. It 
seems clear that the little girl's 
experience was precognitive in 
nature, but what of her mention 
of the man named "Wally" who 
was playing a "fiddle"? 

Captain Sowden soon learned 
that the leader of the Titanic's band 
had been Wallace Hartley, whom 
he had known well as a boy. 
However, he had long ago lost 
track of Hartley and didn't know 
that "Wally" had gone to sea as a 
ship's bandsman. Therefore, it 
would seem that little Jessie's 
vision was clairvoyant as well as 
precognitive, for she had some¬ 
how known Hartley's first name. 

Wallace Hartley and his fellow 
bandsmen on the Titanic had 
played their music to reassure the 
passengers around them. The 
musicians made no effort to save 
themselves, and they died to a 
man. Somehow, little Jessie 
seemed to know that Wally would 
not survive the catastrophe. 

Later, in relating his account of 
little Jessie's vision. Captain 
Sowden made it very clear that 
he was deeply impressed by 
what he had witnessed. 

"What I thought was halluci- 

50 FATE/June 1990 


nation," he said, "was a vision 
that stamped itself indelibly on 
my brain and changed my whole 
spiritual outlook." 

If an "impossible" event actu¬ 
ally does take place, we should 
expect very few people to have 
predicted that event before its 
occurrence. The exact opposite 
seems to have taken place con¬ 
cerning the historical event we 
have just discussed. Dozens of 
instances are on record concern¬ 
ing people who felt certain that 
something would happen to the 
"unsinkable" Titanic on her maid¬ 
en voyage. 

One or two correct predictions 
of this "impossible event" might 
conceivably be attributed to 
chance. But how many such pre¬ 
dictions of an "impossible event" 
must come true before "coinci¬ 
dence" can be ruled out and fore¬ 
knowledge accepted as a more 
likely explanation? 

The reader must decide for 
himself.

It seems that you can get 
mugged anywhere—even on a 
golf course. This happened to 
Oliver Anthony in Memphis. A 
man with a pistol walked up to 
him on the fairway and demand¬ 
ed his wallet. The golfer, 61 but 
feisty, refused. The man with the 
gun fired—and then turned and 
fled. It wasn't until Mr. Anthony 
got back to the clubhouse that he 
noticed he'd been hit. There was a 
hole in his upper pants leg. The 
bullet was imbedded in a golf ball 
in his pocket. 

David Orchard, an 11-year-old 
Glen Innes, Australia boy, stubbed 
his toe while walking along a 
gravel road on his way home 
from school. Undoubtedly he has 
not been the only boy to stub his 
toe, but it is quite likely no other 
boy has been so pleased about it. 
He stubbed it on a big bluish 
something—which turned out to 
be a 575-carat sapphire worth 
$375,000. 

For Kings Mountain, NC auth¬ 
orities, it was like seeing a dou¬

Authorities decided to drop the 
whole thing, however, after discov¬

In Stockholm, Sweden, a man 
charged into a doctor's office,

his eyesight and shot him to 
death. Police said he killed the

What Miguel Espinoso of Bue¬

SPEAKING 
OF 

ANGELS 

By Maia Geikie 

H ave you ever entertained 
or been entertained by an 
angel unawares? The question 
is not so unlikely as you may 
suppose. 

In 1984 a 
book entitled A 
Handbook of Angels by H. C. 
Moolenburgh (published 
by the C.W. Daniel Company, 1 
Church Path, Saffron Walden, 
Essex, United Kingdom) was 
translated from Dutch into 
English and immediately made 
the rounds of various occult fra¬ 
ternities in Britain. The author 
had been prompted to write the 
book by a sermon given in Leiden 
in 1981 in which the minister 


called angels "a forgotten group." 
Dr. Moolenburgh began his 
research with some 400 of his 
own patients, asking each if they 
believed in angels, and if they 
had ever seen or had contact with 
an angel. The result was both 
spectacular and surprising—the 
latter because many reported 
sightings were of angels dressed 


53 


in everyday clothes. 

After reading A Handbook of 
Angels, I began to wonder about 
an extraordinary experience of my 
own and, indirectly, of my family, 
which had occurred some years 
ago. I feel certain that the manifes¬ 
tation witnessed at that time 
could only have been that of an 
angel. We have often discussed 
the phenomenon among our¬ 
selves, yet it never occurred to us 
that we may have been helped by 
an angel—until now—although 
we had realized our helper was 
not someone of this world. 

BAD WEATHER 
FOR A VACATION 

It happened some 13 years ago 
while we were vacationing in 
Wester Ross. Our group consisted 
of my husband Ian, our daughter 
Mary and her boyfriend Andy, 
two large standard poodles and 
myself. 

As a holiday it hadn't been a 
howling success because the 
weather was more fitting for 
ducks than dogs and humans. 
Our cottage near Mellon Charles 
had a leaky roof, necessitating an 
assortment of buckets and bowls 
stationed along the landing to 
catch the drips, and at the same 
time providing booby traps for 
anyone dashing along to the 
bathroom in the dark. Eventually 
we gave up and moved to a hotel 
in Aultbea. 


One day we drove to the head¬ 
land at Wester Ross through hori¬ 
zontal rain and drifting mist as 
this seemed more interesting 
than watching rain through our 
hotel windows. We parked near 
the headland just beyond the vil¬ 
lage of Cove because the dogs 
indicated they wanted to be let 
out. Mary and Andy volunteered 
to escort them while Ian and I 
stayed in the car, a suggestion we 
promptly accepted since the car 
was warm and snug while out¬ 
side the elements were having 
themselves a whale of a time. 

We settled down with books 
and papers while the younger 
generation and canines braved 
the weather. Five minutes later 
Mary violently wrenched the 
door open. Trying to make her¬ 
self heard above the yowling 
wind, she screamed at me, "Come 
quickly. Mummy, Jo has run over 
the edge of the cliff and fallen 
into the sea!" 

That was the gist of the mes¬ 
sage, although at the time it 
wasn't so clearly articulated. 
Earlier I had taken off my shoes 
and now had difficulty getting 
them on again, so without fur¬ 
ther ado I chased after Mary in 
stockinged feet. 

JoJo (more often called "Jo"), 
the younger of the two poodles, 
had, in carefree abandon, charged 
across the springy grass. The mist 
was dense at the top of the head- 


54 FATE/June 1990 


SPEAKING OF ANGELS 



land, and by the time she had 
sensed the hidden cliff edge it 
was too late. She skidded but 
was unable to stop, and had 
pitched over the edge into the 
angry sea below. 

100 FEET BELOW US JOJO 
WAS ON A LEDGE OF DEATH 

A small knot of spectators had 
materialized out of the mist and 
were gathered around Andy who 
was explaining, "The tide flung 
her onto the rocks and she's just 
this minute managed to claw her 
way on to that ledge." He pointed 
to a spot 100 feet below us where 
Jo sat on a narrow strip of rocky 
terrain, howling her head off. 


From where we stood, her face 
looked to be quite bloody. The 
small, narrow horseshoe-shaped 
inlet afforded her some shelter 
from the worst of the weather, 
but the situation was bad. 

There were about five or six 
people on our side and a similar 
number on the opposite edge of 
the horseshoe. Everyone was 
shouting at once, offering their 
advice. Those on the opposite 
side might just as well have 
saved their breath as we couldn't 
hear a word above the uproar of 
the elements. I called down to Jo 
repeatedly, but it was obvious 
she couldn't hear me. 

Having done a little rock dimb- 


June 1990/FATE 55 








ing in my youth, I decided to try 
and reach Jo. Finding what looked 
like a promising place I ventured 
to descend, but after some seven 
or eight feet I became hopelessly 
stuck. The rock face sheered 
steeply inwards making further 
descent impossible without a rope, 
so I climbed back to the top. 

With the howling dog below, 
the screaming wind and the 
report of the sea—sounding just 
like a gun being fired as it hit the 
rocks—it seemed as if all hell had 
let loose and we became more 
and more desperate. 

THE WEATHER WORSENS 

The weather worsened and our 
onlookers gradually drifted away, 
but not without words of encour¬ 
agement and more hopeless 
advice. They seemed to be just as 
concerned for JoJo as we were. 

Something urgent had to be 
done. It was decided that Mary 
and Andy should take the car 
and drive to the village in hopes 
of finding a fisherman intrepid 
enough to brave the turbulent 
waves and take a boat around the 
headland to rescue Jo—a forlorn 
hope, but worth a try. My hus¬ 
band thought that someone some¬ 
where must have a length of rope 
and went in search of one while I 
stayed to watch over my dog. 

Jo sat on her narrow ledge 
howling intermittently, every now 
and then venturing to the cliff face 

56 FATE/June 1990 


as if seeking means of egress, but 
always returning to the same spot 
with a renewed burst of howling. 
I kept calling in case she could 
hear me but as she never looked 
up, I concluded that my voice 
couldn't reach her above the noise 
of the storm. I climbed down the 
rocks in my stockinged feet as far 
as possible to get closer to her and 
then called again, but still appar¬ 
ently in vain. 

Time and again my eyes 
searched the face of the inlet 
seeking another way down, but it 
was hopeless without ropes. 

I REMEMBER MY TRAINING 

Suddenly I realized I was sob¬ 
bing and had been doing so for 
some time without it registering. 
I began to take myself to task. 
"What kind of occultist are you?" 
I asked myself. "What price now 
those years of training," while 
mentally recapping ail I had 
learned. 

Jo's howling had become soft¬ 
er—more of a whimper as if she 
was losing hope. Though I knew 
she couldn't hear me, I shouted 
down words of encouragement, 
telling her everything was going 
to be all right. 

I was soaked to the skin, my 
feet were cut and bleeding, and 
yet from somewhere I gathered 
faith enough to feel hope and ela¬ 
tion as I clung to the rocks and 
began to intone the God-names. 


SPEAKING OF ANGELS 


"Adonai ha-Aretz, Adonai 
Melekh, Adonai ha-Aretz, 
Adonai, Adonai, A-don-ai," I 
sang on and on, all the time 
watching the sea for the boat I 
willed to come. 

Light was failing, the specta¬ 
tors had gone home, and the 
family was somewhere trying in 
their various ways to get help. I 
was alone with the sea, the piti¬ 
less wind and rain and the occa¬ 
sional, desolate howling of JoJo. 
Still I kept on vibrating the God- 
names, invoking help for the dog 
below who had always been spe¬ 
cial to me. Sometimes I changed 
the ritual and called on Pan, 
promising, bullying, begging, 
"Sweet, sweet Pan." 

TIME WAS RUNNING OUT 

My watch told me the family 
had been gone nearly two hours. 
Soon it would be dark and with it 
all hopes of rescuing Jo. I took up 
my intoning with fresh urgency, 
letting the God-names vibrate 
across the sea with all the 
strength and power of my being. 
I stopped visualizing a boat as I 
remembered that one did not tell 
the Gods what to do. Instead I 
visualized JoJo at the top of the 
cliff, well, happy and wagging 
her tail, and I held that mental 
picture as I called on the Gods 
unceasingly. 

For some time I had been hear¬ 
ing what sounded like the echo of 


my own voice, and yet it wasn't 
my voice. I stopped intoning and 
listened. There it was, as clear as 
a repeating chorus: "Adonai ha- 
Aretz, Adonai ha-Aretz." 

The voices came from the sea, 
from the wind and from the air 
around. The elements had taken up 
my song. I clung perilously to the 
cliff, listening to that unearthly 
chanting. Looking down to the 
darkening sea, I could see faces 
forming in the white foam and 
hints of little figures as they 
bounced off the rocks and dived 
back into the seething waters. I 
don't know how long I stood 
there spellbound, looking and lis¬ 
tening, but it is a memory forever 
engraved on my consciousness. 

AN ORDINARY 
MAN IN GREY 
The spell was broken by a 
voice and I looked across the 
divide to the other side of the 
inlet where a man stood—just an 
ordinary man in grey, nonde¬ 
script clothing. He spoke, "Call 
her up now." I obeyed unques- 
tioningly and it never occurred to 
me not to, never giving a thought 
to the fact that JoJo couldn't hear 
me nor the impossibility of her 
making the ascent. 

With a desperate urgency I 
shouted down to my dog, "JoJo! 
Jo, come along girl, there's a good 
dog, come on up." She lifted her 
head toward me, gave a single 

June 1990/FATE 57 


bark and bounded up the solid 
face of the rock. Realizing the 
danger of my own position on the 
cliff face right in the line of her 
ascent, I clambered as fast as I 
could to safe ground. Jo wasn't 
far behind me. She was strangely 
quiet and obviously suffering 
from shock as I hugged her to me. 

THE FAMILY RETURNS 

Then everything happened at 
once. The family returned en 
masse: Ian with a coil of mucky 
rope which he didn't think 
would be much help, and Mary 
and Andy to report on their 
unsuccessful attempt to get a 
fisherman to risk boat and life on 
an increasingly dangerous sea. 
Because of the poor light they 
didn't see Jo immediately, but 
when they did, they gaped with 
amazement and crowded around 
her expressing heart-felt relief, 
demanding, "But how? HOW?" 

"A man told me to call her 
up," I explained inadequately. 

"What man?" inquired my hus¬ 
band, peering through the mist. 

I pointed across the horseshoe 
inlet and there was no man, 
nobody, just the swirling mist, 
the sea, the wind and the fast¬ 
gathering dusk. 

Remembering that I hadn't 
thanked the Gods, I unashamed¬ 
ly threw up my arms to the rain 
and sky and cried out my grati¬ 
tude while the family stared

down at the sea below, and with 
a continuing mantram kept 
repeating it was impossible. 

Impossible, yes. But it had 
happened. We discussed the mir¬ 
acle for most of the night. There 
was no way I could have heard a 
voice across the inlet, but I had. 
The cliff face inclined inwards 
and was impossible to scale but 
Jo had come up it, unaided. 
There could only be one answer. I 
had called upon the Gods and 
the Gods had answered. Was 
their emissary an angel in nonde¬ 
script grey? 

We rushed Jo some 20 miles to 
the vet. Apart from a few cuts 
and shock she appeared undam¬ 
aged. Her toenails were the worst 
affected, frayed right down to the 
quick where she had struggled to 
heave herself from the water onto 
the rocks. 

It wasn't until we arrived back 
at the hotel that we realized it 
was September 29th, Michael's 
Day, named after the Archangel 
closest to humankind. Could the 
man have been Michael? 

Editor's note: In the Jewish (and 
magical) tradition there are many 
names for God. Adonai, Adonai 
Melech and Adonai ha-Aretz mean 
My Lord, My Lord and King and 
Lord of the Earth respectively. Pan is 
the Greek deity of the woods, fields 
and flocks.

EARTH DAY 


13 kr ■ 


By Zoh M. Hieronimus 


There are two basic myths 
which constitute most of the 
world's creation 
stories. One says 
that human be¬ 
ings were made 
from clay and 
dust, and then 
animated by the 
breath of the cre¬ 
ator; the other 
says that hu¬ 
mans descended 
from heaven. In 
both there is a 
descent into mat¬ 
ter, an explicit breathing into the 
earth, a union and identification 
with the soil. The soil can be con- 


April 22, 1990, is the 20th 
Anniversary of Earth Day. This 
important day will be celebrat¬ 
ed worldwide. Programming for 
children, colleges, businesses, 
town forums, clean ups, leg¬ 
islative proclamations and 
much more will add to the gain¬ 
ing momentum in the environ¬ 
mental movement. Here’s how 
each of us can do our part to 
make Earth Day a part of every 
day. 


sidered a measure of our well¬ 
being. 

"That the earth 
was ailing— al¬ 
most beyond re¬ 
pair—was clear 
enough as early 
as 1912 to Nobel 
Prize winner. Dr. 
Alexis Carrel. 
'Since soil is the 
basis for all hu¬ 
man life,' be¬ 
cause all life is 
fed by it, he rea¬ 
soned, 'our only 
hope for a healthy world rests on 
reestablishing the harmony in the 
soil we have disrupted by our 


59 






modem methods of agronomy. 

"We have separated ourselves 
from Nature in our hearts and 
actions but in fact, man and his 
ecological environment are insep¬ 
arable. What we do to the Earth, 
we do to ourselves." (Christopher 
Bird and Peter Tompkins, Secrets 
of the Soil.) 

To the ancients, the Earth was 
the stuff of man, oxygen, hydro¬ 
gen, carbon and nitrogen. Space 
was not empty, but was consid¬ 
ered the etheric formative matrix 
from which all life was engen¬ 
dered. All ancestral teachings 
include acknowledgement of 
beings from other worlds, praise 
for the laws of orders and magni¬ 
tudes of the seasons, cosmos and 
relatives. The mother, father, sis¬ 
ter, brother, grandfather, great 
grandmother, etc., described 
human relations as well as Na¬ 
ture's order. 

PARADISE ON EARTH 

Riane Eisler, in The Chalice and 
the Blade, writes that there was a 
20,000-year period of partnership 
between women and men in a 
primarily horticultural society 
that reached a high point during 
the Minoan period (c. 4,000- 
15,000 B.c.). One still witnesses 
the harmonious partnership 
between men, women and Na¬ 
ture. It was, she asserts, a series 
of earthquakes and tidal waves, 
accompanied by the invasion of 

60 FATE/June 1990 


nomadic herdsmen that de¬ 
stroyed this paradisiacal state. 

EARTH DAY 1990 

What we do to the Earth we 
do to ourselves. Therefore, we 
must change the way we interact 
with our environment and each 
other if either we or the planet 
are to survive. We must deliber¬ 
ately change our consciousness 
and willingly pursue industries, 
technologies and life habits 
which contribute to planetary 
sustainability. Protecting, restor¬ 
ing and preserving the Earth will 
require important acts. 

On April 22, 1990, millions of 
people all over the world will 
participate in such an act by 
showing their concern and 
respect for the planet Earth. Earth 
Day 1990 commemorates the 
20th Anniversary of the first 
Earth Day. That first celebration 
helped spawn the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) and the 
Clean Air Act. Among other 
things. Earth Day 1990 will offer 
heightened media and individual 
attention to our planetary ecosys¬ 
tem. Thousands of tree plantings, 
recycling programs, preservation 
measures, proclamations of 
intent, festivals, religious ser¬ 
vices, school projects, organic 
food programs, town meetings, 
concerts, stream and park clean¬ 
ups will be held around the 
world. Individuals, private, state. 


EARTH DAY 1990 


national and international orga¬ 
nizations and governments are 
taking part in some way to accel- 
erate the global community's 
sensibilities and knowledge 
about our current environmental 
problems and to promote person¬ 
al and community solutions. 
Many supporters hope that this 
will start us on our way to chang¬ 
ing our problematic practices and 
create a just and sustainable 
future. 

The International Campaign 
for Earth Day has created coali¬ 
tions of diverse groups and agen¬ 
das—an historic accomplish¬ 
ment. Some even want "dirty 
industries" such as petrochemi¬ 
cal, paper and waste manage¬ 
ment firms to participate in rais¬ 
ing their own and community 
awareness. Other fighters for the 
environment fear a buy off of 
public opinion and political 
manipulation by polluters if they 
are allowed to either help fund 
programs or join the community 
in paying homage to our planet. 
Though I do not share this view¬ 
point, it is an issue of importance 
for each of us to reflect upon— 
who is without blame for our 
environmental predicament? 

THE HEART OF 
THE BIOSPHERE 

A new sense of the wholeness 
of our biosphere (planet) will be 
characterized by a consciousness 


that expresses harmony and inte¬ 
gration. To achieve this mutuality 
and abundance, "a system gov¬ 
erned by human consciousness 
must be infused with the spirit of 
an open heart." (Andrew Bark 
Schmookler, Out of Weakness). 

Love, compassion and forgive¬ 
ness are prerequisite for reconcili¬ 
ation. After we meet the demons 
within, we must forgive our¬ 
selves and each other and then 
correct our actions. This appears 
to be one of humanity's initia¬ 
tions on Earth. 

WHAT YOU CAN DO 
Our homes are a microcosm of 
our world. By looking at how we 
live, what kinds of products we 
buy and throw away, how we 
manage our resources, what 
kinds of household and personal 
products we use, the foods we 
eat, we can see how each one of 
us impacts the environment. 

The following lists are things 
you and your family can do to 
learn abut environmental issues 
including learning activities for 
children, ways to save energy, 
eliminate toxic products, con¬ 
serve water, recycle waste, and 
more.

TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY 
IN THE KITCHEN 

• Open refrigerator door only 
when necessary. 

• Cook as many meals as possi¬ 
ble in the oven. 

• Preheat oven for 8 to 10 min¬ 
utes only. 

• Use pans with 
flat bottoms and 
tight-fitting lids. 

• Cover pans to 
avoid heat loss. 

• Keep your stove 
clean for efficient use. 

• Keep oven door closed. 

• Dishwashers use less hot water 
than the average family uses 
when doing dishes by hand. 

• Operate dishwashers only when 
full. 

• After final rinse and before dry 
cycle, turn dishwasher off (if the 
instruction manual allows this 
practice). Let dishes air dry. 

• Use a little less detergent (man¬ 
ufacturers recommend more than 
necessary). 

• Use a low-phosphate, or phos¬ 
phate-free deteigent. 

62 FATE/June 1990 


DEVELOP THESE HEAT 
SAVING HABITS 

• Ask your local utility to per¬ 
form an "energy audit" of your 
home. 

• Wear warm clothing instead of 
turning up the heat. 

• Add extra blankets at night. 

• Don't keep running in and out 
of the house. It wastes a lot of 
heat. 

• Keep the heating thermostat at 
65 degrees during the day and 60 
degrees at night. 

• Open drapes to let the Sun help 
warm the house during sunny 
winter days. Close them to save 
warmth at night. 

• Use a clothes¬ 
line instead of a 
dryer when the 
weather permits. 

• Be sure to in¬ 
stall storm win¬ 
dows on every window. 

• Test around all windows and 
doors for drafts by moving a 
lighted candle around the frames. 
Seal the gaps with caulking or 
weather-stripping. 

• Close damper on fireplace 
when it is not in use. 

• Add insulation to your attic 
floor or top-floor ceiling. Con¬ 
sider insulating exterior walls. 

SAVE MONEY ON LIGHTING* 

• Turn lights off when no one is 
in the room. 

• Use the Sun's light whenever 


“Utopia is becoming the 
only viable option open 
to us all.” 
Buckminster Fuller 


EARTH DAY 1990 


you can. 

• Put three-way bulbs in lamps. 
Use high wattage for reading and 
low wattage for conversation and 
general lighting. 

• Use light-colored paint or 
paper on your walls. It reflects 
more light and will enable you to 
use lower-wattage bulbs. 

• Both indoor and outdoor safety 
lighting can be automatically 
turned on and off by photo-elec¬ 
tric cells or clock timers. 

• Turn the TV, radio and stereo 
off when no one is listening. 

SAVE ENERGY (AND MONEY) 
HEATING WATER 

• Showers use less hot water 
than a bath. 

• Install flow restrictors in show¬ 
ers and faucets. 

• Use washer only when you have 
a full load of clothes. 

• Insulate your hot water heater 
and hot water pipes. 

• Wash clothes in cold water 
whenever possible. 

SAVE ON TOILETS, TOO 

• Put a bottle in your toilet tank 
to use less water per flush (bricks 
may dissolve and clog plumbing). 

AVOID 

PACKAGING POLLUTION 

• If you can't recycle something, 
reuse it. Buy products that will 
last. 

• Buy biodegradable products. 


• Use biodegradable wax paper 
to wrap sandwiches instead of 
foil or plastic. 

• Avoid excessive packaging. 

• Buy in bulk. 

• Reuse plastic bags. 

• Buy eggs in cardboard cartons, 
not plastic. 

• Buy concentrated, multi-pur¬ 
pose products, such as laundry 
soap that is also a bleach or a fab¬ 
ric softener, to cut down on pack¬ 
aging. 

• If possible, buy unbleached 
paper versions of products such 
as coffee filters, milk cartons and 
paper towels. 

• Use non-aerosol sprays. 

• Use rechargeable batteries for 
flashlights and other household 
gear. 

• Shop at farmers' markets or co¬ 
ops. 

• Avoid foam packaging—it re¬ 
leases CFCs that destroy the 
Earth's protective ozone layer. 

EAT LOW 

ON THE FOOD CHAIN 

• If your doctor approves, cut 
down on the amount of beef you 
eat. Cattle use up a large amount 
of natural resources. 

• Experiment with occasional 
vegetarian meals. 

• Do edible gardening. Grow 
your own fruits, vegetables and 
even grains. 

• Support local farmers' markets. 

• Join a local oiganic food co-op. 

June 1990/FATE 63 


DO YOU LIVE 
IN AN APARTMENT? 

• Use the roof for a garden or 
hot-water-heating solar collec¬ 
tors. 

• Turn basement into recycling 
collection center. 

ATYOUR 

CHILDREN'S SCHOOL 

• Send lunch in reusable contain¬ 
ers rather than bags. 

• Put separate garbage cans in 
cafeteria for organic wastes, paper 
wastes and other kinds of trash. 

• Set up a paper recycling opera¬ 
tion for classrooms as well as the 
cafeteria. 

• Insist that bugs and weeds on 
school grounds be controlled 
organically. 

• Keep heat transfer coils, con¬ 
densers for air conditioning, 
refrigeration, and drinking water 
fountains free of paper and other 
foreign materials that might inter¬ 
fere with air flow or heat transfer. 

LAWN AND GARDEN CARE 

• Plant trees. They help the plan¬ 
et breathe. 

• Use integrated pest manage¬ 
ment which uses natural pest 
controls and natural predators. 

• Start an organically managed 
garden. 

• Start a compost. 

• Don't use a chemical pesticide 
unless all other methods of treat¬ 
ment which are non-toxic have 

64 FATE/June 1990 


been tried first. 

• If your house or apartment is 
sprayed for pests, open your 
windows and don't enter for 12 
hours if possible. 

• Encourage your family and 
neighbors to not spray their 
lawns or gardens with toxic 
chemical products. We all breathe 
the air, drink the water and eat 
our garden produce. Use organic 
lawn care methods. Call the local 
urban extension program or 
USDA. 

FOR MORE INFORMATION 

• Call local electric utility for free 
information and an eneigy audit. 

• Call your local water utility to 
see what water conservation 
devices they offer. 

• Call your local recycling centers 
to find what materials they col¬ 
lect, if they have curbside pickups 
and on what days, or the locations 
of the nearest drop-off centers. 

• Check Yellow Pages to see what 
is listed under: 

Recycling 

Environmental organizations.

Working together we can have a 
better planet—for ourselves, our 
children, and for future 
generations of the human race.

Of course black dogs 

exist. My neighbor even has one. 
So what do I mean about whether 
black dogs are fact or fancy? 
These are a very special type of 
black dog, namely the ones that 
seem to appear suddenly along¬ 
side you on a dark country road, 
run along with you for a while, 
and then vanish suddenly. 
Usually, they are harmless, even 
if scary. However, they some¬ 
times have been reported to be 
quite nasty and evil. 

CHURCH WORSHIPPERS 
ATTACKED BY BLACK DOGS 
For example, on a Sunday 


morning in August 1577, the peo¬ 
ple at the church in the British 
town of Bungay had quite a 
shock. In the middle of the ser¬ 
vice, a severe storm arose out¬ 
side. Suddenly, a large black dog 
appeared in the middle of the 
church. He ran between two 
members of the congregation 
who were kneeling in prayer. The 
dog evidently "wrung the necks 
of them bothe in one instant 
clene backward, insomuch that 
even at a moment where they 
kneeled, they strangely dyed." 

We know enough to recognize 
that they really must have "died" 
rather than "dyed," since dyeing 
in church is not usually allowed. 


65 



In this case, another worshipper 
was bitten by the dog on the 
back. The bite caused the man to 
be "presently drawen togither 
and shrunk up, as if [he] were a 
piece of lether scorched in a hot 
fire..." The man "dyed not, but it 
is thought is yet alive." 

A similar incident involving a 
black dog in church happened 
that same month (some accounts 
say that same day) in another 
church at Blythburgh, about 
seven miles away. In the latter 
incident, the dog appeared on a 
beam in the church, swung down 
and "slew two men and a lad, 
and burned the hand of another 
person that was there among the 
rest of the company, of whom 
divers were blasted/' There was 
supposedly a set of bum marks 
left on the church door by the 
dog as he left. 

Hundreds of years later, the 
paint was scraped from the doors 
of this church by workmen, re¬ 
vealing the presence of what 
appear to be scorch marks. 

Of course, this type of attack 
by a black dog is no longer any¬ 
thing that has been reported. Yes, 
some of the dogs have been 
reported to snarl menacingly and 
not let you pass, but the attacks 
and deaths are a thing of the 
past. The black dog is often still 
thought of as a sign from the 
devil, but at least the devil isn't 
using the dogs to kill. 

66 FATE/June 1990 


ARE BLACK DOGS REAL? 

Some say that these black dog 
"sightings" are real historical 
events. The people who say they 
saw black dogs of a spectral sort 
really did see them, although the 
"dogs" were clearly of a super¬ 
natural sort. 

Another school of thought 
says that the people who claim 
sightings may well believe that 
they saw a mysterious black dog, 
but whatever it was that served 
as the focus of the sighting—the 
idea or image of the black dog— 
was something from deep inside 
the viewer's mind. To this school 
of thought the black dog is a 
symbolic image of evil, some¬ 
thing that black dogs have repre¬ 
sented to humanity for thou¬ 
sands of years. 

This is the old conflict between 
the historian and the folklorist. 
The historian wants to know 
what really happened. The folk¬ 
lorist simply cares what people 
believed. I will adopt the position 
of the folklorist in this article. 

There is, of course, no way for 
us to decide at this point whether 
any of these incidents really hap¬ 
pened. If someone with a movie 
or videotape camera were to pho¬ 
tograph or film the supposed 
black dog during a sighting, and 
the film or tape showed nothing 
when viewed, then perhaps the 
folklorist might feel vindicated 
for accepting what people be-

lieved. If, however, an image of a 
black dog appeared on the film 
or videotape, exactly as reported, 
then the first explanation might 
be more likely. Unfortunately, no 
photographic evidence exists for 
any black dog sighting. 

There is at least one additional 
complication to this set of two 
possibilities. It is also possible 
that a layer of myth (perhaps in 
part derived from fictional treat¬ 
ments of the black dog theme, as 
in Goethe's Faust), is superim¬ 
posed upon some actual histori¬ 
cal cases. This happens in many 
other fields, such as with UFOs. 
There are quite a few fictional 
accounts of UFO encounters that 
have been passed off as real. 
Exactly how many such "real" 
cases remain after the probable 
fictitious ones are removed is an 
open question, both for UFOs 
and for black dogs. 

SIGHTINGS OF BLACK DOGS 

The interesting thing about the 
black dog is how widely it has 
been reported in the United 
Kingdom. The Germans have 
also reported seeing it. However, 
France and the United States 
don't seem to be among its 
favorite areas. There are very few 
reports of mysterious black dogs 
in the United States, but the U.S. 
seems to specialize in mysterious 
humans and humanoids. 

This richness of British sight- 

68 FATE/June 1990 


ings is probably due to the fact 
that there is a long tradition of 
such sightings in Britain. There¬ 
fore, folklorists are more likely to 
record and investigate reports of 
black dogs than would other 
agencies (e.g., the police) in other 
countries. There would be little 
likelihood of police involvement 
in any case, since none of the 
more modem reports I can iden¬ 
tify involves any real harm to the 
humans involved. Even in the 
United Kingdom, the types of 
reports and name given to the 
mysterious dog(s) varies. 

Among the names given to 
this phenomenon (and hence to 
the dog itself) are Shuck (Black 
Shuck and Old Shuck as well), 
Skeff, Moddey Dhoo, Trash, 
Skriker, Padfoot, Hooter and 
Gwyllgi. This wide variety of 
names gives us the additional 
information that the sightings 
have been widespread, both geo¬ 
graphically and in time. 

What do the sightings have in 
common? Most of the dogs are 
seen at night, have glowing red 
eyes, vanish when you attempt to 
touch them, are silent, non-hos- 
tile, and leave no footprints, even 
in the mud. There are numerous 
exceptions to each one of these 
characteristics in many reports. 

These sightings did not only 
take place in the past. Theo 
Brown, perhaps the leading 
British authority on the subject.

identified some 39 incidents in 
Britain from 1829 to 1958, when 
her paper on this subject was 
published. 

SCRATCHING NOISES 

At the edge of Dartmoor in 
southern England in 1972, a 
farmer and his wife were awak¬ 
ened by scratching noises outside 
their bedroom door. The farmer 
got out of bed and looked out¬ 
side the bedroom door into the 
hall. He could see little at first, 
but when he reached the top of 
the stairs, he saw a large shadow. 
It appeared to be a dog. Just as he 
was about to shoo it outside with 
the poker he was carrying for 
protection, the dog moved toward 
him. Its eyes were fiery red. The 
farmer struck out at it. As he hit 
it, there was a burst of light, the 
crash of breaking glass, and the 
dog vanished completely. Later, 
the farmer and his wife discov¬ 
ered several interesting things as 
they examined their home. The 
electricity was out in the entire 
house, and every window was 
broken. There were broken roof 
tiles all over the outside yard. 
The roofs of a number of neigh¬ 
borhood hpuses had also been 
badly damaged. 

The earliest incident involving 
a black dog of which we have a 
record seems to be from a French 
account by Bertin in the Anmles 
Franorum Regnum, written in 856 

70 FATE/June 1990 


A.D. About halfway through the 
services in a small French village 
church, darkness enveloped the 
building. A large, black dog mys¬ 
teriously appeared inside the 
church, its eyes glowing fiercely. 
The animal ran around the inside 
of the church, as if looking for 
something. It then suddenly dis¬ 
appeared without a trace. 

HARBINGER OF DEATH? 

On the Isle of Man in 1927, a 
black dog was encountered by a 
man on a road near Ramsey. The 
dog blocked the road and refused 
to let the man pass. After this 
blockade went on for a short 
time, the dog moved aside and 
let the man pass. Shortly there¬ 
after the father of the man died. 
The interpretation was that the 
dog had brought the message of 
the impending death. Black dogs 
have often been called harbingers 
of death. 

Another example of this pre¬ 
monition of death can be seen in 
a 1893 Norfolk, England case. 
Two men driving a horse cart 
were forced to stop the cart sud¬ 
denly due to the appearance of a 
black dog in the middle of the 
road. The driver wanted to drive 
straight at the dog; the passenger 
urged him against it. Finally, the 
driver's patience ran out, and he 
whipped the horse forward. As 
the cart touched the dog, there 
was the smell of sulfur, and the 


BLACK DOGS: FACT OR FANCY? 


dog vanished in a ball of flame. 
Within a few days, the driver died 
unexpectedly. 

PHANTOM DOGS AND 
THE CHURCH 
Many British rural people 
thought that black dogs were 
"church grimes." These are a 
sort of spirit that guards church¬ 
yards (i.e., small church cemeter¬ 
ies) from the devil. The origins 
of this belief may be traced to 
the old practice of burying a 
black dog (of the ordinary sort) 
on the north side of the church 
cemetery, in order to spare a 
human soul from having to 
guard the graveyard. It was 
thought that this duty fell to the 
first person buried in the church¬ 
yard. This early affiliation of 
churches and black dogs may 
help to explain why many of the 
early sightings were in the vicin¬ 
ity of churches. 

Interestingly, many reports of 
phantom dogs state that the dog 
appeared unaware of the human 
being who saw it. The dog appar¬ 
ently "haunted" a section of road 
or an area. Sometimes the black 
dogs seem to be on patrol in an 
area. Often bridges mark the 
beginning or end of a phantom 
dog's patrol spot. 

BLACK DOGS 
AND LEY LINES 
Some writers who investigate 


black dogs (e.g., Janet and Colin 
Bord) feel that the locations of 
sightings can be linked with leys. 
Ley theory says that many 
ancient sites were located along 
straight lines from each other. 
These lines are called leys and 
represented some sort of earth 
current or energy flow pattern. 
Perhaps, the Bords state, black 
dog "patrols" occur along these 
leys. Many churches (and their 
churchyards) were built upon the 
sites of earlier pagan shrines, the 
location of which, in turn, was 
often on a ley line. The Bords 
even hypothesize that the ap¬ 
pearance of black dogs them¬ 
selves may be due to a "current" 
passing along the leys. Since the 
presence of such a current has 
never actually been demonstrat¬ 
ed, their idea is pure speculation. 

BLACK DOGS BATTLE 
REAL DOGS 

What happens when a ghostly 
black dog meets a real live dog? 
Actually, there are several occa¬ 
sions when this happened, all of 
which indicates that there is 
some physical reality to ghostly 
black dogs. Pierre van Passen (in 
1939) tells what happened when 
he allowed his two police dogs to 
meet a ghostly black dog that 
passed his house regularly. The 
dogs (who were inside) leaped 
for the door. They bared their 
fangs and snarled. They howled 

June 1990/FATE 71 


as if they were in pain. Although 
the black dog could not be seen 
this time by the human, the dogs 
reportedly snapped and bit in all 
directions. The battle lasted two 
minutes. Then one of the "real" 
dogs fell on the floor and died. 

The appearance of black dogs 
has sometimes been ended by the 
performance of an exorcism ritual, 
or by the display of religious arti¬ 
facts. It is difficult to know what 
to make of this, as there have been 
very few such cases. 

DEVILS AND BLACK DOGS 

In folklore from continental 
Europe, there are instances of the 
devil appearing in the form of a 
dog (often a black dog). This tra¬ 
dition does not seem to mean 
that all (or even most) black dog 
sightings (especially not the 
British sightings, where there is 
no such tradition), are an appear¬ 
ance by the devil. Although some 
devil appearances may be in the 
form of a black dog, the reverse is 
not true. Phantom dogs have also 
been said to occasionally guard 
treasures. 

WHAT IS THE EXPLANATION 
FOR BLACK DOGS? 

Phantom dogs are something 
that few people have tried to 
explain. Theo Brown has made a 
couple of attempts, but I will 
leave it to the reader to judge 
how successful they have been. 

72 FATE/June 1990 


She feels that one possibility is 
that the black dog is an aspect of 
a person at every stage of life, in 
a Jungian sense. They are projec¬ 
tions from the unconscious, man¬ 
ifesting themselves visually at 
times of crisis. It could be viewed 
as a sort of "friendly double" in 
disguise. Going against this inter¬ 
pretation most strongly is the fact 
that black dogs have appeared to 
different people at the same spot. 
It is the location and not the per¬ 
son that seems to matter. 

Another possible "explana¬ 
tion" offered by Brown is that it 
is probably impossible to explain 
the black dog in its own terms. 
By that she means that the more 
we think of the black dog as a 
phenomenon , the more difficult it 
is to explain. If, however, we 
could find some ancient cult or 
sect that had dogs as a symbol or 
"totem," perhaps we could com¬ 
pare our black dogs with them 
for significance. The lack of such 
evidence from history indicates 
that the symbolism aspect of 
black dogs is what is important. 

Some aspects of dog mytholo¬ 
gy that are based upon real-dog 
behavior may be of help. A dog 
howls at the Moon, similar to a 
wolf. It can be an intimate associ¬ 
ate of humans (a possible symbol 
for a vampire-like creature). It 
protects property (i.e., it has a 
guardian function). It scavenges, 
and thus it is associated with 


BLACK DOGS: FACT OR FANCY? 


death and graveyards. It sees 
"spirits," and so may serve as a 
link between this world and the 
next. 

The one thing which does 
seem clear is that the black dog of 
British folklore seems to live out¬ 
side of the concept of human 
time. It appears and disappears 
from human sight by its own 
contrivance. 

CONCLUSION 
What are we to make of all of 
this? Frankly, I don't know. We 
can hold all black dog stories up 
to the standard demanded by the 


historian, and then dismiss them 
as lacking sufficient evidence. We 
can also treat them (as I would 
prefer) as evidence of some sort 
of experienced perception on the 
part of the viewer. How we are to 
interpret this perception is anoth¬ 
er matter. Perhaps all black dog 
perceptions originate in the mind 
of the observer. That doesn't make 
the black dog phenomenon any 
less worthy of investigation and 
explanation. Right now, we are 
still back in the data-gathering 
stage. Any real explanation will 
have to await more data,

PATSY CLINE’S PREMONITIONS OF DEATH 


By Una 

Many country music fans know 
that superstar Patsy Cline died in a 
March 5, 1963 light airplane crash. 
Patsy always had a premonition of 
early death, and there were many 
other premonitions of tragedy sur¬ 
rounding that day. 

Shortly before her 30th birthday, 
September 8, 1962, Patsy insisted 
^ that her friend, singer Dottie West, 
keep her show business scrapbook 
because, "I'll never live to see 30." 
(She lived for 30 years and six 
months.) She told another friend, 
singer June Cash, "I'm going out 
soon. Write something down for 
me." As June later recounted in her 
book From the Heart, Patsy gave 
instructions about how she wanted 
her children raised, and said that 
she wanted her wake to be held in 


Accurso 

her home. It was the last time June 
saw her friend. 

Ellis Nassor’s biography, Patsy 
Cline, adds to the incidents. In 
March 1963, many country stars 
went to Kansas City for a benefit. 
Grand Ole Opry star Roy Acuff was 
scheduled to appear, but his wife 
Mildred had "a funny feeling" and 
let him sleep so late that he missed 
all the planes from Nashville. Cline 
was returning home from the bene¬ 
fit in the plane that took her life. 

Another Opry singer, Jan How¬ 
ard, was a friend of Cline's. That 
night another friend called to ask 
how she was, explaining that for no 
reason two record albums had sud¬ 
denly fallen off the shelf. One was 
hers. The other was Patsy's.

In this highly controversial article, prolific author Hans Holzer 
discusses the truths and fictions of channeling and past life 
investigations. Do you agree or disagree? 


By Hans Holzer 


U ntil a few years ago chan¬ 
neling meant very little to 
the average esoteric seeker and 
nothing at all to the uncommitted 
outsider. Past lives represented a 
vague idea of having lived before. 
It was Dr. Ian Stevenson, a 
respected parapsychologist of the 
medical department at the 
University of Charlottesville, 
who first came out with convinc¬ 
ing evidence that reincarnation 
did exist. The subject of past lives 
finally became a scientific possi¬ 
bility. Reincarnation could now 
be discussed openly among 
researchers in the field of para¬ 
psychology. 

While the two subjects are not 


closely related (one deals with 
communications by some spiritu¬ 
al entity eager to use the human 
channel, and the other with an 
individual's past lifetime and 
experience), they have one com¬ 
mon bond. Both are open to the 
human frailty known as decep¬ 
tion, including self-delusion. 

CHANNELING 
I have worked in the field of 
parapsychology for 30 years, and 
am well familiar with a human 
condition commonly called trance 
mediumship, or, in technical 
terms, dissociation of personality. 
In this condition, an alleged exte¬ 
rior or foreign personality uses 


74 





CHANNELING AND PAST LIVES: THE REAL STORY 


the physical body or "apparatus" 
of a medium to speak with the 
living. Depending on exact and 
individual circumstances, such as 
background, education of the 
medium, test conditions and 
supervision of the experiment, 
this material will be regarded as 
veridical or not. 

Some researchers reject any 
notion of dead people speaking 
through the living, regardless of 
some of the evidence pointing in 
that direction. Other researchers, 
including myself, interpret the 
authenticity of such phenomena 
strictly on the basis of results. If 
the material obtained through a 
trance medium is unknown or 
inaccessible to the medium at the 
time of the experiment, is suffi¬ 
ciently precise and detailed, and 
is accurate in terms of later verifi¬ 
cation, any reasonable researcher 
will accept it as prima facie evi¬ 
dence in the absence of any strong 
evidence to the contrary. 

Trance mediums are rare, per¬ 
haps because the work does seem 
to be very strenuous in physical 
terms. Anyone who has worked 
for many years with "physical 
mediums" (which includes trance 
mediums as well as that even 
rarer phenomenon, ectoplasmic 
manifestations) will see that the 
medium undergoes extreme stress 
while working and no actress can 
fake what transpires in front of 
the experienced researcher. 


MEDIUMS, NOT CHANNELS 

Spiritualism was in its heyday 
in the 19th century. Today the 
study of Spiritistic phenomena is 
called parapsychology, and has 
more stringent controls. Spirit¬ 
ualism involves communication 
with the dead through the 
"instrument" of the trance medi¬ 
um, and has been studied and 
documented. In England, later in 
Boston, and then in New York, 
the Societies for Psychical Re¬ 
search took these experiments 
very seriously. Unfortunately lit¬ 
tle research of this kind is done 
today under conditions eliminat¬ 
ing fraud and deception. 

Trance mediums worked more 
with private clients eager to hear 
from a loved one who passed 
over or with the police in provid¬ 
ing valuable clues to murder 
cases—allegedly, from the victim 
himself or herself. Sometimes 
there have been good results. 

Most psychical researchers 
prefer working in a lab and the 
tedious testing of ESP based on 
the postulated need of repeatabil¬ 
ity of the experiment, before 
accepting the phenomena as gen¬ 
uine. It has always been my con¬ 
tention that the lab and repeata¬ 
bility prove little, if anything, 
whereas competent repeated and 
careful observation of actual, nat¬ 
ural phenomena, if and when 
they occur in life, yields real 
clues and scientific data. 

June 1990/FATE 75 


THE BIRTH OF CHANNELING 

Then along came the channel¬ 
ed. On the surface, they looked 
and acted like trance mediums. 
They closed their eyes or rolled 
them dramatically before going 
into their particular state. Shortly 
thereafter a voice claiming to be 
someone other than the channel- 
er would speak to the audience 
or client. Now the difference be¬ 
tween this process when a genuine 
trance medium does it, or a chan- 
neler, is of course not the tech¬ 
nique but what comes out of the 
channeler's or medium's mouth! 

With a trance medium, any 
good researcher will demand 
identification of the alleged com¬ 
municator and usually gets it 
quickly, if only in halting sen¬ 
tences. The researcher will then 
proceed to have a dialogue with 
the spirit entity—using the trance 
medium as a kind of telephone— 
and elicit as much detailed and 
personal information as he is able 
to, in order to verify it later on. 

This is not so with the channel- 
ers. Attempts at questioning these 
"entities" for personal back¬ 
ground or real names leads to 
platitudes about the high level of 
their mission or fantasy names 
and circumstances that cannot be 
verified. When it sounds as if they 
might be capable of scientific veri¬ 
fication and this is attempted, it 
invariably turns out that it cannot 
be traced in any known records. 

76 FATE/June 1990 


WHY ARE THERE FAKES? 
There are two causes for the 
fake channeler. First, an eager 
audience of followers supplies 
energies feeding the channeler's 
ego (and often also money). 
Second, an otherwise ordinary 
personality uses deeper levels of 
the consciousness to act out fan¬ 
tasies satisfying a craving within 
that personality. 

Some conventional psychia¬ 
trists and psychologists will dis¬ 
miss the channeling phenom¬ 
enon, along with the older, more 
religiously tinged "speaking in 
tongues" as merely an aberration 
of the mind. One can scarcely 
blame them, since their medical 
training has never allowed the 
postulation of the spirit compo¬ 
nent in human life. As Prof. Otto 
Sauerbruch, the famous German 
surgeon stated 80 years ago, "I 
cut up a body, and I don't find 
the spirit, ergo, there is no spirit." 

There is an enormous body of 
evidence that human personality 
does survive the dissolution of the 
physical body, or the outer shell. 
The annals of reputable research 
societies are full of them. The fake 
channeler, of course, couldn't care 
less about scientists or scientific 
evidence—belief is everything. 

THE BUSINESS OF 
CHANNELING 
Channeling has become big 
business, including in-person 


CHANNELING AND PAST LIVES: THE REAL STORY 


seminars where the faithful gath¬ 
er, and at a stiff price, are allowed 
to partake of the often question¬ 
able pearls of wisdom dropping 
from the lips of their channeler. 
Audio and videotapes, books, 
magazines, follow-up books, 
more seminars, and question- 
and-answer sessions where people 
seek the counsel of the channel¬ 
ing entity in solving 


lems are also avail¬ 
able. 

Perhaps the most 

famous of the chan- ago, as the people whose lan- 

nelers is J 2.. Knight, , ... 

a woman who claims guage may have contained that 

to be the channel for ^ wer0 stj|| unbom ; p what 


of would-be mediums have 
claimed as their inspiration, if not 
actual communicator. Just as 
with the Cayce material, eager 
groups of followers are gathering 
all these readings and trying to 
interpret them in such a way that 
they present a new, world-shaking 
approach to life. 


lems are^iso avail- Ramtha (really, Ramatha) could 
not have existed 35,000 years 


Ramtha, whom she 
has characterized as 
a native of India 
who "lived 35,000 
years ago." Anyone 
familiar with Indo- 
Germanic language 
roots will know that the name 
Ramtha (really, Ramatha) could 
not have existed 35,000 years 
ago, as the people whose lan¬ 
guage may have contained that 
term were still unbom in what 
some 15,000 to 20,000 years later 
became known as the Pamir 
plateau, north of India. 

Much of the style used by Mrs. 
Knight in her Ramtha personality 
reminds one of Edgar Cayce, the 
granddaddy of trance communi¬ 
cation whom dozens upon dozens 


some 15,000 to 20,000 years 
later became known as the 
Pamir plateau, north of India. 


Nothing could be further from 
the truth, however. Any fairly 
intelligent person, with a smatter¬ 
ing of psychology and religious 
orientation, could come up with 
similar advice. You don't have to 
be 35,000 years old to do it. 

For the moment, let us assume 
that there really was an entity 
speaking through Ms. Knight, a 
real person long deceased (as 
some of the so-called guides 
claim with many reputable trance 

June 1990/FATE 77 





mediums). Would it not be sensi¬ 
ble to establish that we are hear¬ 
ing from an "enlightened one" 
(as Ramtha repeatedly calls him¬ 
self) who actually lived at one 
time or other in a place on this 
planet? Well, now, if we can't 
find his name listed in a directo¬ 
ry, couldn't he enlighten us with 
definite, specific and truly de¬ 
tailed knowledge of his time and 
place? Then we would have a 
certain feeling of authenticity 
that is the next best thing to actu¬ 
al proof. 

Assuming, for the moment, 
that some very illustrious histori¬ 
cal figures chose to manifest 
through a channeler, wouldn't it 
be likely that their personality, 
character, and style would some¬ 
how come through even if it is in 
English? 

VERIFIED INFORMATION 

I recall one of my earliest cases 
when the late medium and 
researcher Eileen Garrett accom¬ 
panied me and the late Daily 
News columnist Danton Walker 
to his pre-Revolutionary War 
house in the Ramapo Hills. There 
Eileen slipped into deep trance 
and became the vehicle for a 
badly wounded, suffering soldier 
of Polish origin who told us his 
terrible story, haltingly and piece¬ 
meal, including his name and the 
people he had been with. The 
authenticity of this voice was 

78 FATE/June 1990 


incredible. The name and circum¬ 
stances also checked out. 

More recently, the clairvoyant 
and trance medium Yolana Las- 
saw, who often works with police 
on unsolved crimes, accompa¬ 
nied a detective of the New York 
police and myself to the site of a 
grisly murder which had not 
been solved. In sudden, deep 
trance, Yolana, who knew abso¬ 
lutely nothing of the case or 
where we had taken her, spoke 
with the voice of the actual vic¬ 
tim, pointing the finger at one of 
the suspects on whom the police 
needed more information! 

AQUINAS AND 
THE SPACE BROTHERS 

On the other side of the coin, a 
comely lady who makes her liv¬ 
ing as a competent psychic reader, 
assured me on a television pro¬ 
gram we shared that she was the 
channel for St. Thomas Aquinas! 
And what did St. Thomas have to 
say to us mortals? Pretty much 
the same platitudes you get from 
most UFO contactees about the 
dear old Space Brothers who 
want to save the world from 
itself. Nothing about theology, 
deep thoughts, or history. This St. 
Thomas was strictly unreal. But, 
"I channel his essence," she 
intoned. 

Essence? Impersonating a 
Saint? Anyone with a gift of turn¬ 
ing a clever phrase can claim to 


CHANNELING AND PAST LIVES: THE REAL STORY 


be channeling some exotic long- 
ago personality or "Master." 

A good book about channeling 
written by Jon Klimo was recent¬ 
ly published by Tarcher. The fore¬ 
word by the eminent psychical 
researcher Charles T. Tart makes 
no bones about the evidence (or 
lack of it), but suggests that the 
process of dealing with chan¬ 
neled material may help us to 
know ourselves better. Perhaps it 
does. 

WHERE'S THE EVIDENCE? 

Nothing in scientific research 
is an absolute. Not every "ascend¬ 
ed master" is a figment of the 
imagination, but some kind of 
evidence should be required 
before accepting the communica¬ 
tion as genuine and as something 
external to the channeler or 
medium. Years ago, the late Ethel 
Johnson Myers, one of the finest 
trance mediums we have had in 
America (and who had worked 
with me on dozens of hauntings), 
brought through amazing evi¬ 
dence of a detailed nature, fell 
into deep trance during one of 
our many sittings. It so happened 
that the respected astrologer 
Charles Jayne was present. 

A personality spoke through 
Ethel which did not sound like 
her at all. The personality greeted 
the astrologer and engaged in an 
hour's worth of technical conver¬ 
sation about the exact position 


and orbits of certain planets 
including the ones not yet dis¬ 
covered in our solar system! That 
had been Mr. Jayne's specialty, 
and after the session was over, he 
went ahead and verified the 
material given him by the com¬ 
municator, who had freely given 
his name, Kamaraya, and the 
approximate time of his life on 
Earth. Even that name is correct 
for the period and country of ori¬ 
gin, something the medium 
would scarcely have known 
because her training was in 
music. 

EDGAR CAYCE 

Of course, few people will 
question the amazing material 
given in trance by the late Edgar 
Cayce, a photographer without 
any medical knowledge who pre¬ 
scribed valid cures and remedies 
for years. In the end, the proof of 
the pudding is in the eating! If 
the seeker wants sugar-coated 
platitudes, then a fake channeler 
will do nicely indeed. If the seek¬ 
er is truly interested in communi¬ 
cating with an entity of higher 
intelligence, however, the seeker 
ought to be more sanguine as to 
what represents the basic mini¬ 
mum of evidentiality in such 
communications. 

The alleged communicator 
from the Great Beyond should 
identify himself in some manner 
subject to verification, if not by 

June 1990/FATE 79 


individual name, then by authen¬ 
tic knowledge of the period and 
place claimed by the communica¬ 
tor. 

Group sessions are more diffi¬ 
cult to manage in that respect. 
The right to question the commu¬ 
nicating entity directly should be 
demanded by those taking part 
in such sessions and plunking 
down money for it. 

Then the nature of the material 
coming through "the channel" 
itself should be examined critical¬ 
ly. Channelers claiming only 
some vague long-dead Master as 
their source will have to be ques¬ 
tioned when they are "them¬ 
selves" and not channeling, and 
the differences, if any, in style, 
knowledge, background, deliv¬ 
ery of phrases between the chan- 
neler and the alleged communi¬ 
cator examined. If the claimed 
source is someone very well 
known, this is even easier. Only a 
very naive and little-educated 
person should be taken in by 
such pretenses. 

It is possible that some of the 
channeled pseudo-wisdom is 
helpful to the individuals listen¬ 
ing. After all, Dianetics and EST, 
though widely attacked as highly 
questionable, may have helped 
some people over their problems. 
But, the occasional benefits of 
channeling in some cases where 
the material fits a pre-existing 
need which the participant does 

80 FATE/June 1990 


not want to address in a more 
conventional manner, should not 
be misinterpreted as validating 
the method employed here. True 
deep trance is a genuine psychic 
phenomenon which can be help¬ 
ful both as a scientific tool of 
inquiry into the nature of human¬ 
ity, and a vital link between our 
world and the next one. The large 
number of casual channelers are 
not a part of this link. 

The human mind—conscious¬ 
ness working through the physi¬ 
cal brain while we are in the 
physical body—is capable of 
many things not acceptable to 
old-fashioned empiric science. 
Tapping deeper levels of one's 
consciousness, or that of others, 
and deriving useful information 
from such sources is not only 
possible but common. It is nei¬ 
ther supernatural nor in need of 
being "guru-fied" in order to be 
valuable and valid. 

PAST LIFE REGRESSION 

"Past lives" is a term which 
has come into general usage late¬ 
ly. A few years ago, "reincarna¬ 
tion" was the term most common¬ 
ly encountered when speaking of 
the possibility we may be reborn 
into new bodies to gain more 
experience the next time around. 

In the East, the idea of rebirth 
and cycle of karma are old hat, 
and readily accepted as part of 
religious philosophy and orienta- 


CHANNELING AND PAST LIVES: THE REAL STORY 


tion. In the West, the study of evi¬ 
dence for reincarnation owes a 
great deal to Dr. Ian Stevenson of 
Charlottesville and his initial 
work. Twenty Cases Suggestive of 
Reincarnation. Contrary to lay 
opinion, these cases have oc¬ 
curred all over the world and not 
primarily in India where people 
"believe in reincarnation." 

Stevenson took the search for 
past lives out of the world of 
metaphysics and into the realm 
of scientific inquiry where evi¬ 
dential standards are high. De¬ 
tailed information of a previous 
existence—including names, 
dates, places and circumstances— 
must be ferreted out for the case 
to merit attention. 

If the claimant to 
a past life experi¬ 
ence is shown to 
have had no easy 
access to such in¬ 
formation, and if 
that information 
turns out to be 
correct, the case 
for reincarnation 
seems strong. 

Personally, I add 
still another con¬ 
dition to proof of 
reincarnation: the 
claimant should 
not have any psychic ability, 
demonstrated either before or 
after the reincarnation incident or 
incidents. The reason is that com¬ 


munication by another entity 
would be an alternate explan¬ 
ation for the material obtained, if 
it can be shown that the recipient 
is psychic and has had psychic 
experiences before. The proof 
becomes narrower, but also 
stronger in cases where no alter¬ 
nate explanation will suffice. 

A STRONG CASE 
FOR REINCARNATION 
In the case of Pamela Wol- 
lenberg of Illinois, the young 
lady, then 18, sought me out 
because of recurrent dreams in 
which five words were spoken to 
her by an entity she "saw" in the 


dream state. The words were 
"Ruthven... Go wrie...Scotland 
...I leapt." They made no sense to

True “past lives” simply do not 
get recognized in detail in half- 
hour sessions with a reader. At 
best, a psychic may pick up some 
foreign elements about the per¬ 
son whom is being read psychi¬ 
cally. These are picked up from 
the person’s own vibrations... 




her, nor, for that matter, to me at 
the time. Subsequently I went to 
Scotland and started to investi¬ 
gate the matter. With consider¬ 
able difficulty and diligent 
search, I finally found confirma¬ 
tion in an obscure book locally 
published about events in the 
Highlands. The Ruthven family, 
whose "second" noble name was 
Lord Gowrie, had been wiped 
out by the king in retaliation of 
an earlier abduction when he 
was but a lad. 

That was precisely in the year 
1600, and Gowrie Castle was 
renamed Huntingtower Castle, to 
wipe out even the name of the 
hated family. One of the ladies of 
the Gowries had apparently been 
caught in a lover's room by her 
approaching mother. She ran out 
and jumped from one of the two 
castle towers to the other, over 
the roof, and thus successfully 
escaped her pursuing mother. 
How could a simple, 15-year-old 
upstate Illinois girl know this? 
Subsequent investigation through 
extended hypnotic regression 
established additional, detailed 
information, all of which I was 
able to corroborate later. 

I published it as probably the 
best case for reincarnation I had 
come across. Here we had an 
"innocent" subject, Pamela, who 
had no family background in 
Scottish history, no appropriate 
education, nor access to the rare 

82 FATE/June 1990 


book I found in Scotland that 
gave me the key to the puzzle. 
Nobody in his right mind would 
accuse her of making up the 
story, and for what gain? She was 
disturbed by all this and came to 
me for answers, which she did 
indeed get. 

True "past lives" simply do 
not get recognized in detail in 
half-hour sessions with a reader. 
At best, a psychic may pick up 
some foreign elements about the 
person whom is being read psy¬ 
chically. These are picked up 
from the person's own vibra¬ 
tions, for it appears that in all of 
us, without exception, past life 
elements remain deeply imbed¬ 
ded to develop the personality 
through each successive incarna¬ 
tion. 

These past elements are sel¬ 
dom detailed or even clear. In 
some cases, sudden flashes of 
memory suitable to another per¬ 
son than the one having them 
may emerge in the deja vu experi¬ 
ence or in recurrent dreams. I 
have found that only unfinished 
or unsettled lives in the past 
allow for these "bonus" memory 
bits in the present lifetime, per¬ 
haps to make this time around a 
little easier to deal with in com¬ 
pensation for past deprivations. 

PAST LIFE MEMORIES 
MAKE THEMSELVES KNOWN 

Based on years of active work 


CHANNELING AND PAST LIVES: THE REAL STORY 


in this field, it is my conviction 
that genuine reincarnation (past 
lives) memories make themselves 
known to the person sooner or 
later by themselves. They can 
either be ignored, or pursued for 
clarification. 

Unquestionably, if one person 
reincarnates, then we all do. I 
have found that only a compara¬ 
tively few will remember those 
past lives in a way that is truly 
and fully convincing. Naturally, 
it may make a person feel special 
to believe they have spent an ear¬ 
lier existence in a romantic place 
as Tibet or ancient Egypt—two 
favorites of past life readers, 
along with the Holy Land at the 
time of Jesus—but evidence and 
proof of such a person having 
actually existed is another matter. 

Just as with the channeling 
craze, the proof of authenticity 
lies in the specifics obtained 
through past life regression. If a 
past life reader who practices his 
or her craft without benefit of 
deep regressive hypnosis comes 
up with substantial information 
unknown at the time to both sub¬ 
ject and reader, then the evidence 
speaks for itself. 

This rarely happens. Even in 
professionally induced hypnotic 
regression, which I have prac¬ 
ticed for many years, the cases 
yielding specifics capable of veri¬ 
fication under the above restric¬ 
tive conditions are few. But those 


few cases tend toward proving 
the reality of reincarnation. 

PAST LIVES OR ESP? 

Some psychics mistake their 
ESP abilities for genuine past life 
information. They may pick up 
information about the client from 
the client's own unconscious, or 
through an ongoing spirit com¬ 
munication between client and a 
discarnate entity, and wrongly 
determine that this outside per¬ 
sonality is the client in a previous 
lifetime. Unless careful research 
is done and test conditions are 
met, this kind of past life work 
tends to be more imagination and 
suggestion than true reality. 

WAS GEORGE PATTON 

THE REINCARNATION OF 
JULIUS CAESAR? 

When an otherwise responsi¬ 
ble person lays claim to be the 
reincarnation of a well-known 
historical figure, the proof is hard 
to come by. The two cases I am 
about to report have nothing to 
do with eager past life practition¬ 
ers who tell their clients within 
five minutes of meeting them 
who they were in a previous life¬ 
time. 

The late General George 
Patton repeatedly claimed to 
have been the reincarnation of 
Julius Caesar, and based his con¬ 
viction in part on two elements: 
his seemingly unwarranted famil- 

June1990/FATE 83 


iarity with the part of France that 
was Caesar's Gaul during the 
Roman leader's victorious cam¬ 
paigns there, and an "inner 
voice" guiding him in his own 
campaigns in World War I. 

WAS ERNEST BORGNINE A 
ROMAN LEGEND? 

The actor Ernest Borgnine 
believes he was once "Horatio at 
the bridge," a legendary Roman 
hero we know only from Latin 
classics and, perhaps, tradition, 
rather than hard, historical fact. 

There is still another category 
of past lives people sometimes 
think they experience, even with¬ 
out being told so by anyone. The 
return of a loved one, who pas¬ 
sed on years before, as a child or 
relative. Mrs. Smith in Oregon 
assured me her young son, age 7, 
was really her first husband, 
dead 15 years, come back to be 
with her. She was sure of it 
because of certain traits the child 
possessed. 

A CASE SUGGESTIVE OF 
REINCARNATION? 

There are true cases of reincar¬ 
nation, nearly all where someone 
has died prematurely or tragical¬ 
ly, returned relatively quickly, 
and is recognized by someone in 
this life. One example is the case 
of a young man in India, report¬ 
ed by Prof. J. Banerjee, who 
insisted that he had a wife in a 

84 FATE/June 1990 


distant village. The parents of the 
youngster eventually gave in and 
took him to the village he indicat¬ 
ed. There, spontaneously, he 
made for the house he claimed 
had been his and picked out a 
middle-aged woman in it, by 
name, calling her his wife! In the 
ensuing session the youngster 
had accurate knowledge of a 
detailed nature about his alleged 
previous life in such detail that 
there was no doubt about the 
truth of his claims. This being 
India and not America, the par¬ 
ents agreed that the boy could 
take up residence in the house 
and with the family of his "for¬ 
mer" wife! 

SUGGESTIVE REGRESSION? 

When I taped a pilot for a pro¬ 
posed television program in 
Cleveland a few years ago, a 
group practicing "suggestive 
regression" under the control and 
guidance of a professional esoter¬ 
ic group leader caught my atten¬ 
tion, and we proceeded to watch 
a session. Each of the dozen or so 
participants, all of them women, 
went into a meditative state first, 
presumably to tap their deeper 
levels of consciousness, including 
past life memories. Each in turn 
then spoke up and told me who 
they had been before. At least 
two of the ladies were sure they 
had been Egyptians. One young 
Cleveland housewife particularly 


CHANNELING AND PAST LIVES: THE REAL STORY 


interested me. She assured me 
she was Isadora Duncan, the 
dancer, in a previous life, and the 
Queen of Sheba, Solomon's lover. 
I realized that it was their harm¬ 
less fantasy, and knew of at least 
two other Isadora Duncans in 
other cities, so I did not even 
attempt a serious investigation. 
What little I saw and heard made 
it clear to me that these two nice 
ladies did not know very well the 
personalities they claimed to 
have been in a previous life. 

Anybody who wishes to be¬ 
lieve he or she lived before as 
someone markedly different (and 
probably more interesting) than 
their present circumstances is 
welcome to their dream. 

I feel less charitable when I am 
confronted by an increasing 
number of casual practitioners 
giving past life readings at a 
price. None of them use profes¬ 
sional hypnotic regression to see 
whether there is, in fact, any 
memory of a possible previous 
incarnation, but prefer to do their 
readings intuitively and in terms 
that are incapable of true verifica¬ 
tion in books or records of any 
kind. A particularly crass case 
dealt with a lady who had been 
complaining of pains in her 
wrists and feet. She had not been 
able to get a medical explanation 
that satisfied her (such as arthri¬ 
tis, rheumatism, or just tension) 
but met a young lady who had 


the right answer. Apparently, 
those pains were due to crucifix¬ 
ion at the time of Jesus. With that 
explanation, the pains seemed to 
cease or at least recede from the 
patient's attention. 

Dr. William Yaney, the eminent 
psychiatrist of Beverly Hills, 
California, includes reincarnation 
trauma in his treatment of pa¬ 
tients. With a good trance medi¬ 
um as his assistant, he told one 
male patient that the terrible 
pains in his legs were due to his 
having lost his legs in another 
lifetime. The patient accepted the 
explanation, and learned to live 
with his problem. But unless 
there are specific data, such as 
names, dates and places given, 
the past life material, even when 
it turns out to be beneficial to the 
patient, is rarely more than 
another psychological trick. 

Past lives are sometimes 
blamed for something done in 
this life that would otherwise be 
unacceptable socially. A publish¬ 
er of esoteric materials and tapes 
of renown divorced his wife 
when he met another young lady 
he fancied immediately. They 
had been together in another life¬ 
time, and felt they needed to 
rejoin in this one! 

HOW TO AVOID 
THE FRAUDS 

How do you avoid being 
taken in by one of the fake past 

June 1990/FATE 85 


life readers? They may well 
believe in their work and its 
authenticity. There aren't that 
many conscious frauds among 
them, just some self-deluded 
people. Sometimes they help a 
client, though not in the way 
they think. If you are on an hon¬ 
est quest for truth, certain pre¬ 
cautions in dealing with such 
practitioners are recommended. 

To begin with, never talk about 
yourself or what you think you were 
in a prior life. Don't answer the 
reader's questions along these 
lines either. If the reader tells you 
of an existence in another life, 
insist on details: when, where, 
what name. Chances are, the 
reader will do one of two things: 
make them up to sound substan¬ 
tial or tell you, "Sorry, I don't get 
those details." Either way, take 
everything you are told with a 
big grain of salt. 

True, acceptable past life evi¬ 
dence is always possible. But in 
all the years of my practice in 
parapsychology I have found 
that such material is almost never 
searched out deliberately in the 
hope of finding "something." 

Instead, the signs suggesting 
that regressive hypnosis might 
have positive results must be pres¬ 
ent before this is undertaken, and 
done by a professionally trained 
person, not a housewife or 
saleslady turned past life reader 
by her own volition. 

86 FATE/June 1990 


SIGNS OF A PAST LIFE 
WAITING TO BE REVEALED 

These signs are possible recur¬ 
rent dreams, where identical 
dreams keep coming back and 
are clearly recalled on awaken¬ 
ing; extended dejd vu experiences 
in a place the percipient has not 
been before and which contain 
particulars regarding the previ¬ 
ous connection; knowledge or abil¬ 
ity in a field not acquired conscious¬ 
ly in this lifetime, such as a strange 
foreign language, or technical 
knowledge, or memories of places 
and situations one is not familiar 
with in normal life, and has had no 
access to through books, newspa¬ 
pers, television, etc. 

If you observe these signposts 
carefully, pursuing the quest for 
evidence of past lives can be 
stimulating and truly worth¬ 
while. We all have lived before, 
but the majority do not have con¬ 
scious knowledge of it in this life¬ 
time. Those who do, or are able 
to recall under regression, are 
nearly always people whose pre¬ 
vious lives came to abrupt or vio¬ 
lent ends, at least as far as my 
own records show. 

So remember, you can have 
fun in many ways, but if you are 
looking for truth in the fields of 
past lives and channeling, get 
facts that can be checked and 
documented.

PORTAL TO 
THE PAST 



A modern-day woman performs a ritual in 
the ancient Egyptian “Birth Temple of the Gods.” 


By Marilee Bigelow 


Even now the word evokes for 
me the vision of the great outer 
courtyard with the large pillars 


that surround it. The entrance is 
protected by a huge Horus Hawk 
made out of granite. By his very 
stature he dominates and gives 
life to the sacred site. He stands 


87 









in readiness, contemplating the 
the "Birth Temple of the Gods" 
before him. 

MAGNIFICENT 
CONSTRUCTION 
Built in late Egyptian times 
(about 300 B.G) by the Ptolemies, 
the composition of this structure 
is remarkable. It naturally has a 
strong Greek influence. As an 
example of this type of architec¬ 
ture, the artists added lion-head¬ 
ed water runoffs to the construc¬ 
tion, even though the country has 
less than a one per cent rainfall a 
year. It was gratifying to finally 
see this design concept after 
being curious about it for so long. 

There were so many rooms to 
see, and as usual I wished for 
more time to explore them all. 
The group I was with wandered 
about examining everything pos¬ 


sible, and savoring the presence 
of being in this sanctified place. 
We were told by our guide that 
one of the exterior chambers was 
the "Astronomy Room." At one 
time it contained the beautiful 
sky Goddess Nut with her elon¬ 
gated body stretched across the 
heavens. Regretfully, this lovely 
rendering has been partially 
destroyed, as were numerous 
other fine colorful ceilings, for 
the Coptics defaced the temple 
when they lived there. Camp 
fires were burned inside too, and 
the billowing smoke blackened 
the walls and ceilings, destroying 
much of the artwork. 

The Coptics also went through 
many other old temples hacking 
and tearing down the monu¬ 
ments because they believed the 
gods were pagan, and against 
the teachings of the Scriptures.

EDFU: PORTAL TO THE PAST 



The carved surface of the outside walls. 


It's unfortunate that people 
still have not learned to respect 
other beliefs. If they had, perhaps 
we would not have lost so much 
of the archaic knowledge which 
made the old civilizations great. 

The carved outside surface of 
the walls ring with the battle 
between Horus and Set. Horus 
was the son of Isis and Osiris, 
and fought to avenge his father 
who had been wickedly slain by 
his brother. As we strolled along 
examining the walls, we came 
across a funny looking bird hop¬ 
ping about on the stone floor. 
From the plumage on his head 
he appeared to be wearing the 
crown of upper and lower Egypt. 


We found that the Egyptians 
respectfully referred to him as 
the "Wise Bird," because he was 
considered to be a friend of 
Solomon's. 

THE NILEOMETER 

Another important sight was 
the long angular Nileometer at 
Edfu. This device was used to 
measure the flow and height of 
the Nile at various times of the 
year. Lines were carved in the 
stone with steps leading down to 
the water. This was very impor¬ 
tant for it enabled the officials to 
record flood levels as well as set 
crop taxes further downstream. 

Eventually, it was time to enter 


June 1990/FATE 89 




the Inner Courtyard of Edfu with 
its Hypostyle Hall. We presently 
understood this term better as we 
approached the chamber, for the 
word means "forest-like," and it 
accurately describes the interior. 
All of the stone columns were 
artfully fashioned to resemble 
stylized trees. They were placed 
in long, straight rows as if they 
had been planted in a well-mani¬ 
cured grove. We stopped to gaze 
wonderingly up at these magnifi¬ 
cent structures, and were awe¬ 
struck as a large hawk flew 
gracefully over our heads into 
the sanctuary. 

The old temple complex has 
many rooms, each one dedicated 


to a specific purpose. In the origi¬ 
nal room where the ritual boat 
was kept, we saw a reconstruc¬ 
tion of the Solar Barge devoted to 
Horus. This was used to carry the 
golden statue of the God into the 
inner shrine every day where it 
was dressed, anointed, and given 
offerings. 

THE HOLY OF HOLIES 
Finally we were shown the 
Holy of Holies, where a shaft of 
flaxen light streamed down 
through the ceiling, illuminating 
innumerable hieroglyphics on 
the walls. The huge, granite reli¬ 
quary which once held the statue 
of the God still gleams like silver.

and the offering table stands in 
front of it, ever waiting for the 
next priest or priestess to conduct 
their rite. 

A MODERN RITUAL 
IN AN ANCIENT TEMPLE 
Our guide asked if I still want¬ 
ed to perform a rite, as I had 
asked to do earlier. He advised 
me that the group would relax at 
the Rest House until I was fin¬ 
ished. What ecstasy, what a gift, 
to have all of Edfu to myself! 
Suddenly behind me two buses 
of tourists arrived, one French 
and the other German. I still 
don't know where the people 
disappeared to; all I know is that 


once I stepped into the shrine to 
begin my sacrament, I saw no 
one until the services were com¬ 
pleted and I had returned to the 
waiting area. 

The ritual was dedicated to 
mighty Horus, the Golden One, 
the Avenger, to Horus in his form 
of Ra-Harakte, the Sun God. 
Pentagrams and Ankhs were 
drawn, the symbols of protection 
and life. As the invocations for 
the quarterly directions were 
called, incense (a gift from an old 
herb vendor in Aswan the night 
before) wafted up to the God, 
and the circle was cast in the 
inner sanctum. The traditional 
and very familiar Lesser Banish- 



The statue of Horus the Hawk. 


June 1990/FATE 91 


ing Ritual of the Pentagram was 
performed, and an old Indian 
chant praising the limitlessness 
of the great solar disk was 
begun— 

Let us be one with the infinite 
Sun, forever and ever and ever... 

It was an incredible experi¬ 
ence. Just the resounding echo 
and vibrations of my voice 
against the temple walls helped 
me transcend to a different level 
of consciousness. I could imagine 
what it was like when all the 
priests and priestesses chanted 
and sang with drums beating 
and sistrums ringing—what a 
very powerful place! 


Swaying to the inner beat of 
the dance, I censed this holy 
place and all the adjoining rooms, 
purifying with my special in¬ 
cense. When I finally left, my rit¬ 
ual concluded, I took the incense 
and placed it at the feet of the 
large statue of Horus in the outer 


courtyard. It was still fragrantly 
burning when I left. To be with 
Horus is to realize how powerful 
he is, and was, as the living God 
of Egypt. 

Upon my return to the Guest 
House, I was surprised to learn 
that everyone had enjoyed my 
ceremony! In fact, they had heard 
it quite well even though I had 
attempted to be unobtrusive, to 
not attract the attention of the 
French and German tourists. 

I realized that only a few of 
the populace would have been 
admitted into the Holy of Holies, 
the rest would have been out in 
the hypostyled hall, outer court¬ 
yard, or along the exterior walls 
of the temple. The structure was 
acoustically created to carry the 
sounds of the rituals being 
performed inside the 
rooms, to the ears of the 
Egyptian people assem¬ 
bled outside the building. 

Experiencing Edfu and 
seeing Horus' temple made 
me feel like he was still 
very strong and alive. I 
give thanks that I was 
given the gift of working magic 
in this very sacred space, and 
hope that others will have the 
benefit of this opportunity as 
well. For to serve, and do ritual 
as in olden times, fills our hearts 
and souls with great and abun¬ 
dant joy.

(Psychic 
‘Virtuoso 

By Marina D. Kurkov 

The 18-year old violinist, Gil 
Shaham, had a premonition that 
he would soon be performing. 
On Monday, April 17, 1989, he 
changed the strings on his 
Guadagnini violin, "...which I 
always do before a concert, 
although I wasn't booked for any 
concert this week." On Tuesday, 
he was called out of his English 
examination at the Horace Mann 
High School and asked to fly to 
London the following day. He 
subsequently performed in two 
concerts in place of the violin vir¬ 
tuoso, Itzhak Perlman, who 
could not play due to an ear 
infection. 

Shaham, who studies music at 
the renowned Julliard School in 
New York, has been highly 
praised for this performance. The 
Strad, a London music magazine, 
called him "brilliant" and 
"incredibly mature for 18." They 
probably should also have called 
him "psychic." "The funny thing 
is," said the young virtuoso, "I 
had some bizarre premonition of 
this."

TRUE MYSTIC 
EXPERIENCES 


GHOST DOG BRIDGE 

By Angela Curcuru 

An old, 12-foot bridge crosses 
a dry creek bed on the road link¬ 
ing our small community of 
Shandon to the main highway. 
Bruce Clyde, my best friend, and 
I had crossed it dozens of times 
on the way to town. 

One afternoon in April 1989, 
we were driving over the bridge 
and saw a dog cross the road just 
ahead of us. It looked like an 
Afghan hound that had lost 
every bit of fur, and its body was 
nothing but skin and bones. 

Bruce immediately stopped. 
"It looks starved," I said. "Let's 
take it home and feed him." 

We got out of the van and 
called to the dog. It wouldn't 
come, no matter how we coaxed. 
He kept close to the bridge, but 
out of our range. Halfheartedly 
we drove away, but being animal 
lovers, we couldn't resist turning 


by the Readers 

back after about a mile. 

We returned to the bridge, but 
the dog was nowhere in sight. 
Bruce drove back and forth along 
the creek bed. We drove up the 
winding paths of farmers' prop¬ 
erties. How could the dog have 
disappeared in such a short time? 
It hadn't looked strong enough to 
go far. 

After a lengthy search, we 
returned to the bridge and sat in 
the parked van. We felt sad and 
unsettled. Animal abuse or ne¬ 
glect was a major issue for both 
of us. Visibly upset, Bruce got 
out, walked to the middle of the 
bridge and stood against the 
south side rail. Suddenly he 
shouted, 'You've got to see this!" 

As I came alongside, Bruce 
pointed to the sandy creek bed. A 
large plastic trash bag lay open, 
most of its contents visible. I took 
a deep breath when I saw the 
skeleton of a medium-sized ani-

mal. Its long snout and tail, along 
with tall leg bones and deep 
chest cavity, would have matched 
the dog we'd seen. 

Had there been a live dog, or 
was it the ghost of those skeletal 
remains we saw and called to 
that afternoon?

MY GLASSES 
DISAPPEARED 

By Sebi Breci 

I wear glasses that like to 
make excursions without telling 
me when they are leaving and for 
how long. 

One time I placed them in my 
vest pocket. I walked from the 


house to my car—a distance of 
about 75 feet. I got into my car, 
sat down, and made a second 
check to make sure my glasses 
were still there. They were not. 
The glasses had taken the oppor¬ 
tunity to take a short hike else¬ 
where. 

I thought maybe I had dropped 
them on the ground. I looked 
everywhere without success. 
Maybe I really hadn't placed 
them in my vest pocket after all. I 
returned to the car and ignored 
the fact that I had no glasses. 
Suddenly, I felt something in the 
area of my vest pocket. I quickly 
reached up and touched the 
pocket. The glasses were back. 

I once saw a stage hypnotist 
who told one entranced woman 
that her husband, who sat next to 
her on the stage, had left. He told 
her that when she was taken out 
of her trance she would look for 
him on stage and would not find 
him. Her husband never left the 
stage, and even though she looked 
right at him several times she did 
not see him. 

Do we "tune" out the items we 
"lose" or "misplace," such as the 
woman under hypnosis? I cer¬ 
tainly would need my glasses 
and would hardly "tune" them 
out—they were in great need at 
all times. 

Did something, somehow, 
manage to affect the activity of 
my glasses and temporarily move

them into a blind spot in my 
mind's eye? 

Perhaps guardian angels, 
whom we accept as being invisi¬ 
ble, evoke some special power 
that comes with their position 
and simply zap glasses out of a 
vest pocket, cause car keys to dis¬ 
appear, etc. Maybe the entity 
zaps them into the invisible 
realm and views, studies, han¬ 
dles, plays or does something 
with them until tired, then 
replaces them from where "it" 
got them. 

Sound far-fetched? Then you 
try explaining it the next time 
you look for your glasses where 
you last put them—and not find 
them there .—Council Bluffs, IA 

A PRENATAL 
ADVENTURE 

By Betty Lee Spencer 

In 1952, Dianetics by L. Ron 
Hubbard, was quite impressive 
with its adventures into the sub¬ 
conscious. My dad, Lee Spencer, 
and I took turns using the pro¬ 
cess of auto-hypnosis. 

One night Dad was "monitor¬ 
ing" me. At the end of the session 
we talked about it for a few min¬ 
utes, after which he asked if I 
were sure I was back in present 
time. I assured him that I was, so 
he retired to his room. 

Instead of getting off the 
couch, I lay there for a moment 
and fell into a deep trance. All

was dark. I was not an actor in a 
normal scene, but I was hearing 
people talking. As I listened to 
their conversation, there was a 
terrible explosion, the force of 
which was so powerful that it 
brought me to full consciousness. 
I ran to the window expecting to 
see a very serious car accident at 
the least, or the results of a gas 
explosion. There was nothing! 
No sign of any activity whatsoev¬ 
er. 

What was not normal was my 
rapid heartbeat and the way I 
felt. I was sure that my racing 
heart would give out at any 
moment, and that Dad would 
find me dead in the morning. I 
sat down at my desk to write him 
an explanation as to why I died.

giving him a word-for-word 
account of the conversation I had 
heard, finishing with the account 
of the explosion that had rocked 
me back to consciousness. 

It was then, and only then, 
that I realized that my heart had 
returned to normal and that I 
would live after all. 

I went to his room with my 
letter, woke him, and asked him 
to read it. 

He said, "Kid, do you have 
any idea what this is?" 

I said, "No, I don't." 

He replied, "This conversation 
took place one day in my car in 
1918 when I was taking Mrs. 
Brown and your mother for a 
ride. As we passed the Solvey 
Process Company in Syracuse, 
New York, it blew up. Your 
mother was three months' preg¬

with angry, red, aggravated acne, 
she went into action. 

"Bring me an egg. A brown 
egg," said said, "and a glass of 
ice water." 

"Be careful with the egg," my 
daughter warned, "for it is my 
breakfast." 

Our psychologist friend asked 
us to stand in a circle around 
Argentina with our palms out 
toward my daughter. 

She said, "We will take a deep 
breath. Hold it. Let it out. Think 
good thoughts. Take another 
deep breath. Hold it. Let it out. 
Once more."

She took the egg, passed it in 
front of the fiery infection, and 
slowly outlined my daughter's 
figure as she solemnly said, "The 
fire, the fever is going into the 
yolk of the egg. The heat is going 
into the white of the egg." 

As we watched, she broke the 

100 FATE/June 1990 


egg into the glass of water. To our 
amazement, the surface of the 
yolk broke out in a rash of acne¬ 
like blisters. The white of the egg 
turned from clear albumen to a 
thick, white, gummy substance. 

She raised the hair from Argen¬ 
tina's forehead and looked at the 
skin. The redness had paled to a 
soft pink and the bumps were 
clear. 

She smiled with satisfaction. 
"This is not a miracle cure," she 
told us. "We did it by directing 
energy to the site of trouble." 

She turned to my daughter. 
"Do you want this egg?" 

My girl shook her head, 
"Thanks, but no thanks.— Carson,

CHANGE FOR COFFEE 

By Patricia Cheney 

On a Saturday evening early 
in December of 1980, I looked 
into my coin purse to discover 
that it only contained 14 cents—a 
dime and four pennies. I had for¬ 
gotten to go to the bank the day 
before and cash a check. I didn't 
have enough money to walk 
downtown the next morning and 
have an early cup of coffee in a 
local restaurant as was my habit. 
I asked my teen-aged son, Rex, 
for a small loan. He graciously 
handed me a thin dime and said 
that this was all he had. 

Because I usually walked the 
few blocks into the town of 


TRUE MYSTIC EXPERIENCES 


Portola, California, I frequently 
found coins on the street. I just 
knew that I would be able to find 
enough money to buy a cup of 
coffee. I went to sleep confident 
that this money problem would 
be solved. 

Early the next morning I start¬ 
ed the walk into town. It had 
snowed several days before, and 
the streets and curbs were a mix 
of bare ground and patches of 
snow. I continued walking and 
passed the restaurant I usually 
visit—I found no money. I walked 
two more blocks and passed 
where I usually turn. 

I suddenly glanced up and 
saw a telephone booth. There 
was something on the small shelf 
inside of the phone booth. On 
closer investigation I found half 
of a pack of my brand of cigarettes 
and two quarters and a dime. 
Hooray! Now I could get that 
wake-me-up cup of coffee. Posi¬ 
tive thinking had worked. 

Since then, I have used the 
ability to desire something, think 
about it briefly and eventually 
obtain it innumerable times. 
Items would be located at our 
local thrift store, at the city 
dump, on the street or given to 
me. I have obtained such things 
as lost rings, a hammer, items of 
clothing, food for my pets, and 
yes, an occasional coin.— Portola,

THANKS, MOM. HOW'S DAD? 

By Al Horvath 

Home from work in Gardena, 
California, Dad lay down on the 
couch to relax and watch televi¬ 
sion. It was 1970 and he had 
recently bought us a new color 
set that we all loved to watch. 
Moments later, Albert Horvath 
Sr., my dad, was dead from a 
massive heart attack. 

At the moment of his death, 
the new television quit working. 
Despite our efforts to revive it, 
the screen remained a dark blank. 
We promised Mom, Lillian Hor¬ 
vath, that we would call a repair¬ 
man after the funeral. 

Returning home with family 
and friends after the service, a 
cousin walked straight to the TV 
and turned it on. The TV's resur¬ 
rection amazed everyone, espe¬ 
cially my mom. "Just like him," 
Mom said, "to make sure we 
mourned him properly. He didn't 
want us watching TV before the 


funeral." 

Many times we spoke of Dad's 
special way of communicating. It 
had a profound effect upon my 
mom, and later she adopted a 
spiritualist philosophy of life.

MY PROOF OF SURVIVAL 


"Come visit me after you go," 
I told her. "Haunt my house for 
me," I teased her. I could tell by 
her look that she thought I was 
being foolish. Maybe she thought 
there would be more important 
endeavors in the great beyond. 

A year after her death my wife 
and I were awakened by a loud 
rapping. Confused by the sound, 
we lay back down to sleep. 

Again—rap, rap, rap. It was 
very loud, but we couldn't tell 
from where it was coming. 

I got up to investigate, but 
found nothing. Shortly after 
returning to bed there was anoth¬ 
er series of loud raps. Again, I 
went to investigate. 

In the kitchen more raps await¬ 
ed me. Grabbing a flashlight, I 
followed the sound outside to the 
crawl space under the house. A 
quick look revealed wiring that 
was smoldering and the wood of 
the flooring was smoking. 

Thanks to the raps, we discov¬ 
ered the fire before any serious 
damage was done. I also now 
knew its source. Mom came back 
with a life-saving message. 

"Thanks, Mom. How's Dad?"—

daughter. I was fed up with our 
lifestyle—he was a gambler. 

I moved back to Toledo, Ohio, 
and lived with my parents until 
my daughter's birth. Then I was 
lucky enough to find a good job 
and eventually got a divorce. 

The years went by so quickly 
that I rarely thought about Sam¬ 
uel. I remarried and moved to 
Missouri. Actually, I lost track of 
Samuel after 1961. His and my 
daughter, a very bright and tal¬ 
ented young woman, was now in 
her senior year at Northwestern 
University. 

A few months before her grad¬ 
uation, I started dreaming about 
Samuel. In one dream, I saw him 
traveling to St. Louis but never 
arriving. In another dream, sev¬ 


eral older men sat in chairs in 
front of a row of stores, while 
others danced. Troubled by the 
dreams, I contacted an Ohio 
police chief whom I had worked 
for and prevailed upon him to 
help me find Samuel. I speculat¬ 
ed that the police would have 
some information. The chief had 
me call the L.A. County Sheriff's 
office, which, to my surprise, not 
only gave me Samuel's address, 
but that of a friend of his. 

Eagerly, I composed two let¬ 
ters, one to Samuel and the other 
to his friend, all the time fantasiz¬ 
ing that Samuel would surprise 
our daughter at graduation. 

Finally, I was called by a 
woman, who identified herself as 
a friend of Samuel's, with the 
news that Samuel had been killed 
during an attempted robbery in 
a store which he owned. What's 
more, he had been killed by the 
friend I'd written to. 

I believe that Samuel came 
back to help me so that his 
daughter would not stumble in 
his violent death unprepared.

FROM THE READERS 


LETTER OF THE MONTH 
Each month, FATE editors choose an 
especially noteworthy letter to share with 
our readers. The writer of the letter 
receives $10.00 for his/her fine efforts. 

Leroy Ellenberger's letter ("Re¬ 
port From the Readers," FATE, 
February 1990) regarding Veli- 
kovsky's theories is extremely 
misleading. As a former "Senior 
Editor of Kronos," he is well 
aware that Velikovsky relied on 
much more than the use of Myth 
(oral history; or as the ancient 
Greeks, called it, the facts that 
accompany the play-acting) to 
arrive at his conclusions. 

Perhaps Ellenberger is not yet 
aware of the most recent "expert" 
knowledge on preserving infor¬ 
mation. According to an article in 
the San Francisco Chronicle , the 
state of Washington found few 
traces of a book written earlier 
this century. Federal officials are 
having trouble finding a comput¬ 
er that can run data tapes from 
the 1960 census. 


by the Readers 

"One study said the greatest 
way to preserve knowledge was 
to create a sort of priesthood, 
with rituals and people passing 
on what is known to other gener¬ 
ations...Every 25 years, those 
people chosen as children to keep 
the state's memory alive...will 
select another group of capsule 
children to do the same thing..." 

Furthermore, if Mr. Ellenberg¬ 
er had looked around the many 
parts of this world I have ob¬ 
served (other than Missouri), he 
would have seen the vast "physi¬ 
cal evidence for the supposed 
recent, world-shattering devasta¬ 
tions" that he is attempting to 
deny. 

It was Velikovsky's logic that 
cannot now be denied .—Alice 
Miller, San Francisco, CA

EARLY MORMONISM AND 
THE MAGIC WORLD VIEW 
By D. Michael Quinn 
Signature Books, Sait Lake City, 
UT, Hardcover, 1987,313 pgs., 
$14.95 

When letters referring to magi¬ 
cal practices, allegedly written by 
Mormon founder Joseph Smith Jr. 
in 1825, and an early convert, 
Martin Harris, in 1830, surfaced in 
1985, the Church of Jesus Christ of 
latter-day Saints faced a curious 
outside.world. Although informa¬ 
tion about Smith's involvement in 
occult practices was common 
knowledge—or least commonly 
available to church historians— 
few people beyond this circle 
were aware of it. The letters, how¬ 
ever, proved to be foigeries. 

The New England of Joseph 
Smith's youth was filled religious 
turmoil as the proliferation of 
protestant groups competed for 
souls. Not only did they compete 
against each other, but also 
ingrained beliefs in the powers of 
the natural world—all the occult 
sciences. Almanac sales did a brisk 
business and people employed 


divining rods and "shewstones." 
Beginning at the age of about 13, 
Smith used both in searches for 
buried treasure and in attempts to 
foretell the future. This continued 
for at least seven years. 

In addition to locating the 
gold plates containing the Book 
of Mormon using a divining rod. 
Smith and his family had three 
magical parchments or "lamens," 
inscribed with occult and astro¬ 
logical symbols. Occurrences in 
their lives, such as the dates of 
the plural marriages of Joseph 
Smith Jr. and Joseph Sr., and even 
the birth months of their chil¬ 
dren, also had apparent signifi¬ 
cance. Later visions and revela¬ 
tions experienced by Smith and 
other early Mormon leaders 
established the tenets of their 
faith and worship practices. 

The church hierarchy came to 
downplay its former occult con¬ 
nections and discouraged folk 
magic practices. 

Author Quinn thoroughly doc¬ 
uments his facts with references to 
a large volume of research materi¬ 
al, and uses extensive footnotes.

OF INTEREST 

CHANGING YOUR DESTINY 
By Mary Orser & Richard A. Zarro 
Harper & Row, NY 
Softcover, 1989, 240 pgs., $9.95 

This is a book that centers on 
"instantaneous enlightenment." 
Readers of this astrology-orient¬ 
ed book are reminded that they 
encompass the entire zodiac, not 
just a few prominent signs. I was 
fascinated with the scientific 
data, discussion of surrounding 
fields, and holographic treatment 
of the mind, which lent credence 
to the book's exercises and goals. 

The idea of "instant enlighten¬ 
ment" seems to transmit the mes¬ 
sage that the wisdom of those 
who have truly studied life is not 
necessary. You can do it all by 
yourself through your mind. Yes, 
the actualized self is certainly 
enlightened, but there is more. 

This book places emphasis on 
altering one's attitude, or "re¬ 
framing" our existence to turn 
negatives into positives, through 
relaxation and visualization. But 
again, while the theory of parallel 
universes is useful in pointing 
out different options and ways of 


viewing situations, it borders on 
escapism, something that should 
be avoided.— Cait Hall 

GAMES OF THE GODS 
By Nigel Pennick 

Samuel Weiser, York Beach, ME. 
Softcover, 1989, 244 pgs., $12.95 
The author seeks to prove that 
traditional board games, such as 
chess, have their origins in forms 
of divination. He shows that 
ancient people saw a harmony in 
the heavens and in nature. People 
would strive to elucidate and 
manipulate the present and fore¬ 
tell the future through divination. 

Board games reflect the struc¬ 
turing of society, including tem¬ 
ples, cities, and rituals, which the 
ancients concluded was in har¬ 
mony with the will of the Divine. 

I found the book delightful. 
The author proved his points and 
presents fascinating tidbits of 
information. Most valuable is the 
presentation of a comprehensive 
rationale for every form of div¬ 
ination mentioned. Heartily rec¬ 
ommended.— Priscilla Schwei

THE BEAR TRIBE'S SELF- 
RELIANCE BOOK 
By Sun Bear, Wabun & Nimimosha 
Prentice Hall, NY, Softcover, 
1988, 198 pgs., $8.95 
This book teaches you to be 
self-reliant...well, sort of. My first 
reaction to this book was, "Is this 
all I need to know about setting 
up life in the woods?" 

Of course, it isn't. Even the 
authors advise that you consult 
other books. Some of their 
instructions are sketchy. But I do 
recommend this book as a primer 
for anyone who dreams of going 
back to the land. 

The authors provide directions 
for starting a self-sustaining com¬ 
munity, from buying land, and 
obtaining water to the necessities 
of budgeting and insurance. My 
favorite part deals with the dif¬ 
ferent Indian prophecies. Most 
are grim (but so is what has hap¬ 
pened to our environment over 
the past 100 years), yet they all 

112 FATE/June 1990 


provide a glimmer of hope. 

This book can help us all learn 
to be more self-reliant, if only in 
our own small ways, and teach 
us to be conscious and respectful 
of the Earth Mother.— Tracy 
Whartman 


ON BECOMING POWERFUL 
By ]ohn Volkmar 
Weiser, York Beach, ME 
Softcover, 1988, 140 pgs., $7.95 
This book proves that with 
complete control of the abilities 
of relaxation and psychic utiliza¬ 
tion, a person is free to become 
whatever he or she wishes. 
Volkmar offers 26 simple exercis¬ 
es for reaching this state. 

One of the most annoying 
things I encounter in books on 
this subject is extraneous author 
comments and needless fluff. A 
book really need only present the 
basic techniques, signs to watch 
for and answers to common 
questions. Psychic development— 
like artistic development—hinges 
on the student's own subjective 
perceptions, so all anyone really 
needs is a gentle push in the right 
direction. Volkmar, like Joseph 
Weed in his book Psychic Energy, 
succeeds in presenting just the 
essentials for psychic training. 
This allows him to touch on sub¬ 
jects most authors think need a 
book of their own. — Steve Deger

REPORT FROM THE READERS 


continued from page 106 
vakia these days. The people 
who are getting free of [a] totali¬ 
tarian system and its philosophy 
will undoubtedly be interested in 
parapsychology, spiritual devel¬ 
opment, etc. 

We would like to organize a 
research group on these ques¬ 
tions. It is the first opportunity 
for us to do so since 1948. Under 
the old regime it was forbidden. 

However, due to a complete 
lack of literature on the topics 
covered in FATE, and a lack of 
convertible currency, we would 
like to ask whether it would be 
possible for your readers to send 
us any old, used copies of FATE 
or any other magazines or books 
on the subject.— Dr. Karel Pugner, 
471 51 SVOR 245, Czechoslovakia. 

Editor's Note: We are providing Dr. 
Pugner with a complimentary sub¬ 
scription to FATE. Can other read¬ 
ers help them, too? Perhaps you can 
help the following person... 

It is unbelievable in world his¬ 
tory: the Communistic Party lost 
its leading post within only 10 
days! We fought a war of words 
without any shooting. Not one 
dead man or woman! Handbills, 
leaflets and posters were hastily 
scribbled by brush or pen. Com¬ 
munist adherents would tear 
them down at night, but by dawn 
a new crop would appear to give 


voice to a nation's defiance. 

I have been studying astrology 
for more than 40 years. In the 
'50s I was sent off to a military 
concentration camp because of 
my contacts with fakirs and 
because they thought I was read¬ 
ing the future with a crystal ball, 
even though I didn't have one. I 
was forced to do manual labor 
for many years without any 
remuneration. 

I ask for readers' help with 
back issues of your magazine or 
any other spiritual or astrological 
literature including the Cayce 
prophecies. The censorship de¬ 
partment was dissolved so any 
book can come through. 

God bless you in your daily 
work!— Jaroslav Mixa, Vrbova St.

Here is my own theory regard¬ 
ing Spontaneous Human Combus¬ 
tion: Everyone has experienced 
static electricity, the slight electric 
shock which a person receives 
when touching a metal object 
after walking across a carpet or 
sliding across a plastic seat. I 
believe that one person in several 
million, because of tension or 
some other cause, will not be able 
to release the static charge that 
his or her body has built up. This 
continues until it reaches a point 
when it releases in full force, caus-

FATE, March 1990) quoted from a

can determine from sources such 
as The Arthurian Encyclopedia, 
there is no such person as 
"Maelgwyn of Avalon" nor is 
there any such title as Historia de

interested in his comments on

JO KENDALL AND THE 
BEYONDER 

A letter written by me to FATE 
was published in the February 
1990 issue. It was an endeavor to 
find out if anyone aside from 
myself had been contacted as 
being a "beyonder." I have 
received several replies to this 
letter, too many to answer due to 
my health. 

126 FATE/June 1990 


The majority can be separated 
into two groups. Those that were 
as mystified as I am about being 
contacted and a few that declared 
it a hoax. 

I received a letter from a prac¬ 
ticing beyonder. As a result of 
practicing certain laws she says 
she has attained every goal she 
aimed for. She is not allowed to 
give the specific laws, but for 
more information people can 
contact R.I. Research, Special 
Human Laboratory, 949 Broad¬ 
way, New York, NY 10010. Thank 
you all for your generous re¬ 
sponses.— Jo Kendall, Moab, UT.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE 
FROM THE EDITOR 
In a continuing effort to make 
FATE interesting and useful, we 
have changed the location of the 
page numbers beginning with 
this issue. Now, even if all you 
have is a photocopy of an article, 
you will be able to quickly tell 
which issue of FATE it came 
from. This is the first such change 
in FATE since the magazine 
began. What do you think?

EXTRATERRESTRIALS IN EGYPT? BOOK 
REVEALS THE STARTLING TRUTH 

(St. Paul, Minn.) — The truth explodes in a new book and card deck 
that reveal how a spaceship appeared in Egypt around 6,000 B.C. 

Beings emerged from the craft. The men of 
space, called Amen Ra (from the Sun), taught 
technology, medicine and craftsmanship. The 
women of space, called Isis (from the Moon), 
taught magic, religion, philosophy, music, 
beauty and health. They bred with the people 
and later departed. Over the centuries their 
teachings were suppressed. The International 
Grand Council of the Inner Temple of Isis, 
however, kept the sacred teachings alive. 
Now High Priestess Ishbel has been chosen by 
the Council to present these writings, due to 
her many years of dedication both as a stu¬ 
dent and a teacher. The book, THE SECRET 
TEACHINGS OF THE TEMPLE OF I SIS, will pre¬ 
pare us for whatever lies ahead in this New 
Age. Secrets now being made public include: techniques for astral 
projection and meditation, exercises to activate untapped brain cir¬ 
cuitry, 13 calendar rituals, a thorough discussion of the Egyptian 
Tarot and more! The book is 348 pages and sells for $12.95. 

The colorful TEMPLE OF ISIS EGYPTIAN TAROT DECK contains the 
original cards brought by the 
extraterrestrials, made up of 22 
Major Arcana depicting actual 
Egyptian deities, and 56 Minor 
Arcana with its unadulterated 
symbolism. The deck, which 
sheds light on one's destiny and 
karma, comes complete with lay¬ 
outs and a manual. The 78-card 
deck sells for $12.95. Be one of 
the first to discover the power of 
Isis! Order your book and deck 
from the address below. The Temple of Isis Egyptian Tarot Deck 


TO ORDER: Just send $12.95 for each book or card deck plus $3.50 shipping and handling 
to Llewellyn Publications, P.O. Box 64383-2091, St. Paul, MN 55164-0383. MN res. please add

Jesus Christ—A Metaphysician? 
Discover the Truth Today in: 


If 


In Search of the 
Primordial Tradition & 
the Cosmic Christ 


by Father John Rossner, Ph.D. 


The Book that Bridges 
Christianity with the New Age 
He walked on water, raised the 
dead, healed the sick, and turned 
water into wine. Is it possible that 
Jesus Christ was an occultist, adept 
at alchemy, levitation, healing and 
other feats? Is it possible that he 
had tapped into a primal wisdom 
that is available to us all? 

A Must for Anyone Interested in 
the Psychic Origins of All 
Religions 

Find evidence for this primal 
wisdom, of which only small 
pieces comprise major spiritual 
traditions. This wisdom lies within 
us; when we access it, we open our 
lives to the "miracles" of old. 


The Evidence Will Fascinate You 
Fr. John Rossner, a visionary 
priest and professor of compara¬ 
tive religion at Concordia 
University in Montreal, demon¬ 
strates that: 

• Psychic experiences have long 
had a role in developing religions 

• Western culture has lost touch 
with the psychic roots of wisdom 

• A revolution of esoteric thought 
has already begun. 

This book presents everything 
you will need to know to live the 
magical life of Christ. It is time for 
us all to heal the sick, give sight to 
the blind and feed the masses!
